Security researchers at CybelAngel have found unprotected confidential patient data available to criminals for blackmail, fraud, or other malicious purposes. More than 45 million medical images, as well as associated personally identifiable data. Have become available on the Web due to unsecured technologies used to store, send and receive medical data.
A six-month study conducted by CybelAngel specialists allowed to reveal a large-scale data breach. The aim of the study was to determine the level of security of network-attached storage (NAS). And communication using the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) protocol. A standard that medical institutions use for data transmission and processing.

The leaked data includes confidential medical records, X-ray CT scans, and MRI scans that anyone can access online. CybelAngel experts scanned about 4.3 billion IP addresses. And found 2,140 unprotected servers in 67 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, and Germany.
Medical images contained up to 200 lines of metadata per record, including the patient’s name, date of birth, and address. As well as his height, weight, diagnosis, etc. In most cases, access to this information did not require credentials. And on portals that required registration, it was possible without filling in the login and password fields.
