Stanford Hospital Privacy Breach Puts Data Online

What's that you say? Your information was compromised by this data breach? Well, you have nothing to worry about because it was the fault of a subcontractor and the hospital promised to never use them again. Problem solved. roll eyes (sarcastic)

In a statement, Stanford Hospital said the file that contained the patient information and was posted to the site was created by a subcontractor employed by one of its vendors, Multi Specialties Collection Services. The hospital did not name the subcontractor, but it said Multi Specialties Collection Services is investigating how the company caused patient information to be posted to the website.
