No evidence has been found to suggest that Massengale Eye Care's data has been accessed during the attack, with Massengale Eye Care also noting that there have been no reports indicating any identity theft. "Although this incident was completely out of Massengale Eye Cares control, we sincerely regret any inconvenience or concern that this matter may cause, and remain dedicated to ensuring the privacy and security of all information in our control," said Massengale Eye Care. Meanwhile, telehealth vendor MDLIVE Medical Group disclosed being impacted by a data breach involving its patient portal's third-party analytics tool, which has compromised data from 7,439 individuals between June 2019 and August 2022. "Based on the way the tool works, that information would then have been accessible to (although not necessarily viewed by) the third-party owner of the tool," said MDLIVE.
