The FBI has not discovered the hacker who broke into the Department of
Health Profession's computer, nor has it discovered what private
information was retrieved, Virginia's Secretary of Health and Human
Resources Marilyn B. Tavenner said today.
Questioned intensely by members of the House Appropriations Committee,
Tavenner said the FBI thought it would take another two weeks to complete
"They said it was like looking for a needle in the haystack, but they have
ways to find the needle," she said.
Someone broke into the Department's database of addictive prescription
drugs, such as oxycontin, morphine and Methadone. The data are kept to
monitor who is using the drugs. The user's name and address, the date of
birth and the substance are in the database.
The department recognized an unauthorized message posted on the Web site
on April 30. The computer systems were shut down and state authorities
were notified. All data had been properly backed up and back up files had
been secured, Tavenner said.
