Source codes for all of PilotFish Technology's software is available for illicit sale, according to an investigation by security provider InfoArmor.

A bad actor, batwhatman, placed the code on the AlphaBay site, a dark web marketplace operating on the Tor network that is popular with cybercriminals for the sale of stolen goods and services, including stolen digital data.

This finding is evidence of "substantial infiltration by cybercriminals into peripheral systems," according to InfoArmor's report, “Healthcare Is Under Attack.” 

PilotFish Technology, a software vendor that provides middleware software and services to enable the integration of systems using industry and XML standards, had previously been contacted via Twitter by “DarkOverLord,” in an extortion attempt. 

InfoArmor researchers speculated that the miscreants infiltrated a corporate SVN server from which they purloined application source codes written in Java, as well as data on employees and a customer database containing nearly 2,000 companies worldwide.
