OSU reports a possible data breach in health center


An unauthorized person may have stolen some patients' personal information from a server computer at the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Science. This data breach may have included access to patients' names, Medicaid numbers, treatment dates, along with one possible Social Security number.

On Nov. 7, the health center learned of the breach and shut the compromised server down. The center sent letters this week (2 months after reporting) to patients that may have been affected and advised the patients to look for any services they were billed for but didn't receive.
