What's This Settlement About?

A $450,000 Class Action Settlement has been reached with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (“UPMC”). The original class action lawsuit was brought about due to an alleged third-party criminal cyberattack targeting email and computer systems between approximately April 1, 2020 to June 25, 2020. This security incident resulted in the potential compromise of personally identifiable information such as:

• Social Security Numbers,

A law firm retained by University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Charles J. Hilton PC (CJH), had been the target of these attacks and the breach resulted in email accounts being accessed by a malicious third party cyber attack, according to class action lawsuit documents.
