Independent Living Systems LLC is a healthcare and nutrition services company that offers managed services to partner health facilities and providers. The company specializes in short-term internal living care and works with elderly patients regularly. Independent Living Systems recently suffered from a data breach that released protected health information for patients out into the world. The released data may cause serious issues for the patients involved.
The Independent Living Systems breach occurred when an attacker broke into the company's file network and encrypted key files. The attack resulted in key features of the company going offline and created serious problems for the organization.
The breach was first noted on June 30, 2022, and the attacker maintained access to the network until July 5, 2022, when it was finally cut off. Over that time, the individual or group of attackers had access to protected health information.
This Independent Living Systems data breach impacts patients of the company, or of facilities that work with the company. If your data was entrusted to the file servers held by the organization, it could be at risk, and you may suffer from fraud or identity theft.
The Independent Living Systems network includes thousands of documents and secure files. We don't have an exact count, but we believe most of the file server was vulnerable to the attackers.
