Unpacking the MOVEit Breach
(Published October 2023)
If you haven't heard about it yet, a software product called MoveIT was compromised by a group called cl0p. Lots of businesses used MoveIT, and many of those businesses provided data related services to other businesses, so the exposure is spread out, and those impacted may be once- or more-removed from the buseinss that whose data was compromised. As a result, you may have already heard about other MoveIT-related breaches. If you're curious about the details, you can learn more here. Tufts has learned that NASCO, which provides technology to health insurers, like BCBSMA, was impacted. If you are a Tufts employee or dependent who is enrolled in our BCBSMA, you may receive a notice from NASCO. The notice will include instructions for how to sign up for 24 months of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection and the number for a toll-free call center. If you need more information, the best source is the call center phone number provided in the notice.
