Huntsville Hospital vendor reports data breach

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville Hospital reports one of their vendors has experienced a data breach. The hospital sent the following release Thursday afternoon:

"Regrettably, we’ve learned that Jobscience, Inc., the vendor which we’ve used for online employment application services since 2006, had a data breach which may have involved information from individuals who applied for jobs at Huntsville Hospital. Because of this, notification letters are being sent to the affected persons.

Although we have no indication that any information has been misused in any way, out of an abundance of caution, we are offering identity theft protection to those job applicants whose Social Security Number may have been compromised.

The hospital no longer uses the services of Jobscience."
