At least tens of thousands, if not millions, of medical records of New York patients were until recently readily accessible online to just about anyone who knew how to look.
Patient demographic information, social security numbers, records of medical diagnoses and treatments, along with a plethora of other highly-sensitive records were left completely undefended by a medical IT company based in Louisville, Kentucky. The files, which belong to at least tens of thousands of patients, originate from Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York.
