Data breaches at two French healthcare payment service providers, Viamedis and Almerys, have now been determined to impact over 33 million people in the country.
The data protection authority in France has now confirmed both data breaches and says that the attacks impacted 33 million people in the country.
“These operators, who manage the third-party payment for supplementary health insurance, saw the data necessary for their missions compromised during this breach. In total, this data leak concerns more than 33 million people.”
“Although contact data was not affected by the breach, it is possible that the data involved in the breach could be combined with other information from previous data leaks,” warns CNIL.
