Partnership HealthPlan of California Data Breach Lawsuit

Consumer Protection Attorneys in California

For a brief moment on March 30, 2022, visitors to the Hive ransomware breach site would have seen the name Partnership HealthPlan of California listed.

According to the listing, threat actors are alleged to have exfiltrated 850,000 unique records comprising information such as a person’s name, social security number, date of birth, address, and contact information. According to Hive, they had 400 GB of stolen files from an attack on PHP’s files that occurred on March 19, 2022.

After conducting a search on PHP’s website, it was discovered that they had issued a notification on their website. The notification, which is not dated, opens with:
