Massive security breach at prominent Los Angeles clinic puts thousands at risk

Prominent Los Angeles celebrities are some of the thousands of patients that might be at risk after a massive security breach at a plastic surgery clinic.

A spokesperson for the Beverly Hills plastic surgery center told CBS Los Angeles records of 15,000 of Dr. Zain Kadri’s patients were stolen. The spokesperson said some of the doctor’s clients include celebrities.

The spokesperson told the station that a disgruntled former staffer allegedly committed the privacy breach after being fired for stealing. The staffer is accused of stealing financial information and stealing photos of the patients while they were unconscious and posted the pictures on social media.

Staffers discovered the stolen photos on a company phone.

The clinic said Los Angeles police were notified of the breach.

It’s unclear if the staffer was arrested.
