Damn, this is going to scare a lot of people away from the help they need. I see it as a hate crime.

The story is still developing - now it seems like either the breach happened a year and a half ago, or that there were two breaches. Either way, the then CEO covered up the original breach. Curiously, he was also the person who developed the software they used.

So today the CEO got fired from his post, but he is claiming that he had no knowledge of the breach until two weeks ago.

Supposedly they also had some celebrities and members of parliament as patients.

It's been on the local news here, they've also started blackmailing individual patients. It's super, super farked, and I hope both the CEO that allowed this to happen and covered it up, and the individual blackmailing these people, are found, because this is horrific.

Story from a local news site.

Yeah, the story I just found on YLE seems to suggest that there were two breaches.

I can only read the english-language articles, though, my Finnish isn't anywhere near good enough to read a news article, yet.

(that said: Google translate does Finnish to English VERY well, even if the reverse doesn't work so well. I think it's 'cause Finnish is actually a very, very structured language. As a co-worker up here said to me, "It's like an engineer built a language."
... I also like that their word for Computer *ISN'T* just a... Finnish-ized version of computer, but it is a compound word that literally translates as "information Machine" (tietokone).)

I will watch this with great interest.

Wasn't that raid on the James Bond Villain hideout in the Finnish Islands about that time?

Ah, okay. Just after.

Because in no way should anyone imply that Russians with nasty, shady associations with Vladimir Putin had ANYTHING to do with this.
