Data of American Truckers Have Been Leaked


Ransomware operators Conti posted on their so-called "leak site" data stolen from the Virginia medical company Taylor Made Diagnostics (TMD) in a cyberattack in December 2020.


TMD provides medical examinations, alcohol and drug testing, cardiopulmonary resuscitation courses, aptitude assessments and vaccinations. According to the information on the company's website, its clients are military personnel, employees of the US Secret Service, etc. In addition, it provides medical services to truckers and railroad workers.


The data released by the Conti operators is believed to be owned by the logistics company United Parcel Service (UPS) and the Norfolk Southern Railroad. The leaked data includes full names, social security numbers, medical exam data, alcohol and drug test results, and scanned copies of driver's licenses, the HIPAA Journal reports.


While TMD does not verify the data, FreightWaves, a shipping news and analytics company, has 3,000 files posted on January 8, 2020, including UPS and Norfolk Southern Railroad employee records from last year December. FreightWaves also found data from US government officials, defense contractors, and many small shipping firms.


Norfolk Southern Railroad, which employs 25,000 people in 22 states, said it is verifying the authenticity of data published by cybercriminals. UPS, which has 362,000 employees in the US and 82,000 in other countries, is also investigating a possible hack.
