MediSecure enters liquidation just weeks after GP prescription data stolen

GPs say they are still waiting to hear what personal information was taken during the cyber attack.

Prescription software company MediSecure has gone into liquidation less than a month after being hit by a ransomware cyber attack, with affected doctors still unsure what personal information was stolen.

The company, which stopped processing PBS scripts last year after the Federal Government awarded a sole provider contract to long-time rival eRX, was still processing private scripts when it was hacked on 16 May.
