Southern Nevada Health District website data breach attributed to ‘Malicious Code’

A recent data breach has occurred on the website of the Southern Nevada Health District, affecting approximately 300 clients who completed transactions using the Environmental Health Invoice Payment form between March 4 and March 14. Officials discovered a malicious code on the page, which redirected clients to a fraudulent payment form that appeared to be a credit card payment page not affiliated with the district.

The Southern Nevada Health District is taking immediate action to address the breach. They have hired cybersecurity experts to secure the site and investigate the incident further. Law enforcement has been notified of the incident, and officials are working closely with them to prevent future incidents and protect the security of their clients and patients. Those impacted by the breach will receive a letter from SNHD and will be offered assistance with potential identity theft and resolution services.

As of now, there have been no reports of credit misuse resulting from this incident. However, this breach serves as a reminder of the importance of staying vigilant and taking measures to protect personal information online. The Health District is committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety and security of their clients’ information. They are continuing to work with authorities and security advisors to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
