Data of Singapore PM stolen!
In a shocking cyber attack, hackers have stolen the personal details of over 1.5 million patients in Singapore. No less than Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's personal records have been compromised. The hacking has happened from a hospital, Singapore's Ministry of Health said.
The malicious and dangerous attack has been described as “deliberate, targeted, and well planned” by the Singapore government. What have been stolen? Names, addresses, gender, race, dates of birth, National Registration Identity Card numbers, among others.
"SingHealth’s database had a major cyberattack. 1.5m patients, myself included, have had personal data stolen. We will tighten up defences and processes. We are convening a Committee of Inquiry to look into this," the country's PM tweeted out.
