The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was recently breached by members of TeamBerserk (h/t Cyber War News).

The hacker announced the breach with a tweet stating, "LOOOL hitrustalliance #hacked #rooted and connected boxes #rooted by #TeamBerserk"

Cyber War News reports that the hackers published server information, data from penetration tests and scans, six user names and encrypted passwords, and information on 111 registered users including their full names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, company names and more.

"Even if we painstakingly piece together something lost, it doesn't mean things will ever go back to how they were," the hackers wrote in a statement preceding the data dump.

HITRUST has been active in helping healthcare organization optimize their cyber security, making it a particularly attractive target for hackers.
