Feedback from one user that her e-mail account had been used to access her HealthHub account illegally led to the discovery that the health portal had been targeted.
The Health Promotion Board (HPB), which runs HealthHub, a gateway to citizens' clinic appointments and medical records, said yesterday that 72 HealthHub accounts are suspected to have been illegally accessed recently. Access was limited to users' self-populated profiles and points accumulated under HPB programmes.
The incident comes several months after a major attack on SingHealth's database. Both systems were run by Integrated Health Information Systems.
