Data Breach: Quest Diagnostics

On November 28th, 2016 Quest Diagnostics failed to secure the Protected Health Information (PHI) of 34,000 patients from unidentified threat actors.  An “unauthorized third party” accessed patient data including their lab results, name, date of birth, and telephone numbers.  According to a press release from Quest Diagnostics, the stolen information does not include Social Security Numbers, or credit card information.  Hackers were able to steal the data through an insecure web application named MyQuest by Care360.   Patients are able to store and share electronic health records through the app.  The MyQuest app is available online and to both Android and iPhone users.
