MacKeeper Security: Patient Home Monitoring Service Leaks Private Medical Data Online. “Kromtech Security Researchers have discovered another publically accessible Amazon S3 repository. This time it contained medical data in 316,363 PDF reports in the form of weekly blood test results. Many of these were multiple reports on individual patients. It appears that each patient had weekly test results totaling around 20 files each. That would still be an estimated 150,000+ people affected by the leak. The database appears to be connected to a ‘Patient Home Monitoring’ company that provides a in-home testing program that is aimed at improving clinical patient outcomes, and saving patients from weekly office visits.”
