Capitol Hill Data Breach at DC Health Exchange

Data Breach at DC Health Insurance Exchange Compromises US Lawmakers

A recent data breach at DC Health Insurance Exchange is responsible for the exposure of US lawmakers’ protected personal information.

A hacker going by the name “IntelBroker” has claimed responsibility for stealing the personal information of over 170,000 individuals from DC Health Link, an insurance exchange that also administers healthcare plans for members of Congress.

The stolen database contained sensitive personal information, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, email addresses and home addresses.

The breach, which compromises the info of US lawmakers and staff members, could lead to identity theft schemes and phishing attacks that purportedly may jeopardize national security.

Launching an investigation, the insurance exchange is now working closely with forensic investigators and law enforcement to re-secure and ensure the security and privacy of users’ personal information.

As a result of the attack, DC Health Link is assuring the provision of free identity and credit monitoring services to the entirety of its customer base while the investigation continues.
