Hackers steal data on 14,000 HIV patients

There has been a major hacker attack in Singapore where 14,000 people diagnosed with HIV, including foreigners, natives and especially many young people, are unhappy with the data. Eventually, the details of hacker infiltration in 2016 finally arrive. He appears to be responsible for the HIV-positive US attack, the partner of which is the physician of Singapore. The hacker attack in question took place only a few months after more than 1.5 million people in Singapore were abused, including the writings of Prime Minister Lee Hsies Loong.

The last attack should include data on names, titles, HIV status and other information. Officials said that since the registration in 2013, 5400 people in Singapore and 8,800 foreigners were abused.

Who is responsible for the attack?

Authorities believe the attack hides the name of a 33-year-old American who has lived in Singapore since 2008. Mikha Farrera-Brochez (pictured) was convicted and jailed in 2016 for counterfeiting and drug trafficking and was deported last year.

He talks about former partner Ler Teck Sian, a former director of the Singapore National Public Health Department, who was entrusted with Farreri-Brochez to lose medical records and hide positive HIV status. After writing the portal, Ler had to put his blood in place of Farrer-Brochez in order to enter the country. In a press release, the health ministry, Lera, accuses that she has been involved in fraud and has not cooperated with the authorities in dealing with confidential information. Only in 2016 it should be noted that the US has confidential information but at the same time thought that all information was protected and accepted by the local police.

A police spokeswoman said she was informed on 22 January that Farrera-Brochez would still have an HIV register containing confidential data of 14,000 patients. "I am very sorry that one of the former employees who had all the privilege to access confidential information in the HIV register violated safety rules or did not follow all the instructions given earlier," Health Minister Gan Kim Yong said.

On Monday, ministry officials should try to recall "practically everyone" who currently lives in Singapore and all local residents on the list, but only 900 people have been contacted. A special line was immediately created and the ministry will provide quality advice and other services. Finally, the minister added that he believed that Farrera-Brochez was somewhere abroad, but still does not know where. "There is still a percentage of opportunities to publicly disseminate information," Chan warned.
