UCSF Data Breach: Apparently, there was a successful "phishing" incursion into the records of about 600 University of California - San Francisco patients. The data was accessed because a USCF Medical School physician inadvertently disclosed his user name and password in response to a phony email asking for the information (the typical "phishing" attack). This goes to show that sometimes, "social engineering" makes your humans your weakest link.
