healthcare-consultant-shuts-down-due-to-insecure

From Dark reading via Slashdot.

While reports of the breaches have been issued in dribs and drabs, all of the data losses can now be attributed to a single incident, in which Verus employees left a firewall down following the transfer of data from one server to another, according to David Levin, vice president of marketing at MedSeek.
MedSeek is picking up a lot of business from Verus Inc., which shut down after investors pulled the plug when affected hospitals terminated their contracts.

This seems hard to believe, since the reported breaches run from June 4th through today. Perhaps Versus didn't notify all their customers at the same time? But they shut down "eight to 10 weeks ago".
