Equinox, where drug dealers phish for new clients

According to the Times Union (read it here), Albany-based Equinox drug rehab center gave up names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, medical treatment or diagnoses, medication and health insurance information on 1000 or so current and former clients. "…hackers had gained access into two email accounts…" In other words, phished.

Now this breach actually makes sense. If you're a drug dealer and want new clients, here's an easy way to contact them. After all, Equinox has no email impersonation/phishing protection. Notwithstanding the PR blather about "Equinox, inc. takes the security of all information very seriously…" you can expect some legal action.

Ah sigh.
