Southern Nevada Health District website breached due to malicious code

A recent data breach occurred on the Southern Nevada Health District’s website, affecting around 300 clients. The breach took place on the Environmental Health Invoice Payment form between March 4 and March 14. Malicious code was injected into the page, redirecting clients to a fraudulent payment form that resembled a credit card payment page.

The Health District immediately removed the form and notified law enforcement and cybersecurity experts to investigate and secure the site. The district emphasized the importance of client and patient security, stating that they are working with authorities and advisors to prevent future incidents.

Individuals affected by the breach will receive a letter from SNHD offering assistance with potential identity theft and resolution services. As of now, there have been no reports of credit misuse as a result of the breach.

SNHD is taking proactive measures to address the data breach and ensure the security of their clients and patients. They are committed to working with authorities and experts to prevent similar incidents in the future and provide support to those impacted by the breach.
