Is the Regal Medical Group Data Breach a Scam?

The Regal Medical Group data breach potentially impacted millions of patients' personal information. Regal Medical Group became aware of the ransomware cyberattack breach on December 8, 2022, which they later learned occurred on or about December 1, 2022.

What Happened

What Information was Involved

On Friday, December 2, 2022, Regal Medical Group noticed difficulty in accessing some of their servers. After extensive review, malware was detected on some of their servers, which they later learned resulted in the threat actor accessing and exfiltrating certain data from their systems. They hired third-party vendors experienced in this area to assist with their response to the incident. The Regal team worked with our vendors to efficiently restore access to their systems and to analyze the impacted data.

At this time, based on the third-party vendors’ review, Regal Medical Group believe that their customers' personal information may have been impacted in the incident, and that their impacted personal information may include: their names, social security numbers (for certain, but not all, potentially impacted individuals), date of birth, addresses, diagnosis and treatment, laboratory test results, prescription data, radiology reports, health plan member number, and phone numbers.

    My siblings and I received this letter. Kind of weird because I never had any the medical groups listed.
