In Singapore, the personal records of more than 14,000 individuals diagnosed with HIV were leaked by an American man, according to the Health Ministry. The names, contact details, HIV status and test results of 5,400 Singaporeans and 8,800 foreigners, diagnosed with the virus since 2013 were stolen and published online, raising questions about the security of medical records in the country following another large privacy breach.

This data leak follows the hack last year of the personal health records of 1.5 million people by a suspected state-sponsored attacker. That previous hack specifically targeted the medical records of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
