UT Southwestern One of 400 Organizations Hit by Data Breach


Protected health information and patient social security numbers were stolen from UT Southwestern as a part of an international hacking incident that impacted more than 400 organizations worldwide.

UTSW confirmed that in late May, a Russian group called Clop took credit for breaching their data by attacking the university’s use of managed file transfer software MOVEit. Shell, the U.S. Department of Energy, American Airlines, and other large organizations were also hacked in May before MOVEit identified the weakness and stopped the breach, resulting in more than 20 million people in two dozen countries whose personal data was stolen.
