Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Johnson & Johnson data breach investigation.
Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Johnson & Johnson data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting an unspecified number of individuals and their personal information. Affected are Johnson & Johnson’s patients who were enrolled in the company’s CarePath service before July 2, 2023. The CarePath service is managed by IBM.
Johnson & Johnson became aware of a technical method by which unauthorized access to the database could be obtained and notified IBM. On or around August 2, 2023, IBM confirmed that the exploit had been used to gain authorized access to patients’ personal information. This information includes names, contact information, dates of birth, health insurance information, and information about medications and associated conditions that were provided to CarePath. It is not yet known when this information was accessed.
Johnson & Johnson recently began informing individuals of this breach on August 2, 2023, through a posted notice on its website. All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous to affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web, to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.
