HealthHub, a one-stop portal and mobile application for Singaporeans to access a wide range of health content, rewards, and e-services, which was launched in 2015, had experienced a series of unauthorized log-ins, according to the Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) recent statement. The portal is an initiative by the Ministry of Health, and Health Promotion Board, supported by Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS), the national technology agency for healthcare in Singapore. HPB and IHiS had detected the unauthorized log-ins during investigations into unusual activities on the portal. The agencies had found “higher than usual attempted log-ins” to the HealthHub portal on four days – Sept 28, Oct 3, Oct 8 and Oct 9 – using more than 27,000 unique IDs or email addresses.
