New Delhi: The hackers have attacked an Indian healthcare website and stole 68 lakh records, an US-based cyber security firm FireEye said on Thursday.

The cyber security firm, however, did not name the website. It said the cyber criminals, mostly China-based — are directly selling data stolen from healthcare organisations and web portals globally.

Media reports quoting FireEye said: “In February, a bad actor that goes by the name “fallensky519″ stole 6,800,000 records associated with an India-based healthcare website that contains patient information and personally identifiable information (PII), doctor information and PII and credentials”.

FireEye said it continues to witness a concerted focus on acquiring healthcare research by multiple Chinese advanced persistent threat (APT) groups.
