Ransomware recently targeted Philadelphia based company, "Law Enforcement Health Benefits". The company provides health insurance to police officers. The encrypted files contained information about Philadelphia Police Officers, Sheriffs and County Detectives, and their families including names, dates of birth, social security numbers, drivers license numbers, health insurance information, medical records, and even financial records.
