Healthcare Workers Private Data Leaked from Covid-19 Tracker App

Since the November of last year, the entire world has been suffering from a life-threatening pandemic situation. We have been forced to be isolated into our homes and continue our work using online resources. But shifting huge amounts of data to the internet also increased the chances of cybersecurity attacks. In the past few months, there have been an increasing amount of attacks on various networks and public sectors, especially the healthcare sectors.

Recently, there has been a surge in the leakage of private data from a Covid-19 tracker application in the Philippines. The web app and mobile app for this tracker app, called COVID-KAYA has witnessed several drawbacks and vulnerabilities, which have been exploited to leak several private data.

The COVID-KAYA app was used by healthcare workers to  track the number of Covid cases and the entire calculations of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Philippines. The app’s database contained private data related to the healthcare workers as well as the patients. But on exploiting the various vulnerabilities of the app, there were a large number of cases of unauthorised access to the app’s database, using which there have been reports of leakage of healthcare workers’ data as well as private data of several patients.
