Atrium Health notifies patients of Blackbaud data breach

A cyberattack against an international software company included a database breach of customer Atrium Health, which may have compromised some personal information about patients.

In recent weeks, affected patients and philanthropic donors were notified and Atrium posted a notice of the ransomware attack on its website. Atrium Health officials said in the notice some information — possibly including a person’s name, birth date and doctor’s name — was accessed when cybercriminals targeted one of its vendors, Blackbaud.

The hospital system says no medical records or information about medications or test results were compromised and no credit card or bank account information was stolen.

Blackbaud, which provides donor management software to many institutions around the world, notified Atrium on July 16 of the attack on its systems, according to Atrium’s letter to patients, one of which was obtained by the Observer on Saturday.

Samsung unveils new Galaxy Fit2 fitness tracker with big battery life

Samsung has updated its fitness tracker range with the Samsung Galaxy Fit 2.

After unveiling the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatch last month, the company looks like it’s taking aim at Fitbit Inspire 2.

However, it will also face competition from budget smartwatches like the new Amazfit Band 5, which joins the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 as the best options for those looking for a fitness band.

The new Galaxy Fit2 looks like it could merge the older Galaxy Fit and super-cheap Galaxy Fit e.

However, we should pre-face everything by saying that Samsung hasn’t announced any pricing or availability.

The new Fit 2 scales back materials from metal to a plastic module that sits in the silicone band.

It looks a little less premium than its predecessor. And this makes us think it could come in at a lower price than the 99 of the original Galaxy Fit.

“As a result, this restricts the flow of moisture which can cause dryness in your mouth.”

He continued: “A
