MaineGeneral Health (MaineGeneral), located in Augusta, Maine notified employees and patients last week that personal information and protected health information was compromised in a cyber-attack last month. The health care provider system was notified by the FBI on November 13, that its information was located on an external website not accessible to the general public.

The compromised information of an unknown number of individuals included names, addresses, and telephone numbers of certain employees and prospective donors, as well as dates of birth and emergency contact names, addresses, and telephone numbers of patients referred for radiology services by one physician since 2009.

Although MaineGeneral indicates that no Social Security numbers or financial information is known to have been compromised, the investigation is ongoing, and therefore, MaineGeneral is offering affected individuals one year of credit monitoring and identity restoration services as a precaution.
