This software was known for securely moving files, but in May of 2023, a vulnerability in the software was exposed that allowed hackers to access all the files connected to the program. The C10P ransomware gang relied on this vulnerability to steal data from more than 150 separate companies. PH Tech was one of the companies impacted and nearly 2 million individuals may have lost data as a result.

We don't know the exact dates when the attack occurred, but on June 2, 2023, PH Tech was informed the vulnerability existed and that there was an issue to deal with. PH Tech hired a firm to investigate and got an official report back on June 16, 2023.

Who Does the Breach Impact?

The PH Tech breach has the potential to impact 1.7 million customers enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan. All these individuals could have had any of the data points outlined above exposed to attackers.

How Many Files Does the Breach Affect?
