List of data breaches and cyber attacks in October 2017 – 55 million records leaked

See the list of cyber crimes and data breaches this last October.

October had been bad.

A story to emphasise is the breach at a London-based plastic surgery firm. A well-known “hacking gang” stole photographs and a list of patients, and has threatened to release them.

This is obviously worrying for the firm and its patients (which may include members of the royal family), and it demonstrates how little remorse some cyber criminals have.

So, numbers: 55,488,818 leaked records in October.


Attend the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor training and certification event in Dublin, Ireland on 11-15 December with ContinuityLink.

During this training, you will develop the expertise needed to audit an Information Security Management System (ISMS) and manage a team of auditors by applying widely recognized audit principles, procedures and techniques.
