Zoll is the supplier and manufacturer of critical care equipment and services throughout the United States. The products offered by this provider are used to save lives by EMS and other emergency responders. Zoll was recently attacked by hackers and may have lost consumer data due to the attack.
The Zoll data breach occurred because hackers infiltrated the file network. Once inside the network, the attackers were able to get away with a substantial amount of data. There is no clear evidence that any data has been misused, but future problems are likely to be caused by this attack. The attackers were blocked out of the network shortly after getting in, but they could have obtained lots of data before that occurred.
The Zoll breach became known on January 28, 2023. At that time, it was clear someone unwanted was in the file network. It took hours to get the network safely locked down once again. It wasn't until February 2, 2023, that an investigation for this incident began.
The Zoll data breach affects customers of the company. If you work with Zoll and you've entrusted your information to the provider, you may have been harmed by this attack. Zoll is sending letters out to any individuals it believes could be impacted by this attack. Look for a letter from the company. If you receive a notification, you should take steps to protect yourself. Use the identity protection service provided and also monitor your credit and consider putting a freeze on your credit.
The Zoll breach could have affected thousands of different files. We don't know the full extent of the attack, but it could be a serious problem for many consumers around the United States.
