How Richmond’s dentist-richmond va was targeted
(AP) A Richmond dental office was the target of a cyber attack in which a hacker obtained access to its servers and other confidential files, a Richmond health department official said Thursday.
The Richmond Office of Health and Human Services announced Thursday that the cyber attack targeted its cyber security team, but said it was unable to identify the individual who was responsible.
The agency did not name the person or provide details about his or her affiliation.
It was not immediately clear who the hacker was.
Richmond, a city of 1.8 million about 70 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., is home to more than half of the nation’s dental office openings, with more than 1,500 open in the past year.
The office was also targeted in March, when a hacker breached its database.
