Cybercriminals recently breached DC Health Link and stole sensitive data belonging to roughly 17,000 people, including members of the U.S. House of Representatives, with the data later put up on sale on a hacking forum. DC Health Link is the health insurance marketplace that handles healthcare plans for U.S. House members, their employees and families. While the officials couldn’t share any details about the data that was stolen, BleepingComputer found that it was being sold by a threat actor going by the name IntelBroker. The database contains names, dates of birth, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, Social Security Numbers, which is more than enough to launch a successful identity theft campaign.
