New coronavirus (COVID-19) detection technology and data from Beijing-based Huiyi Huiying are being sold online by hackers for 4 bitcoins.
According to the hacker's public posting, the data sold included 150MB of new coronavirus lab research, 1GB of technology-related content, the source code for the detection technology, and 1.5MB of user data.
An unnamed cybersecurity team has notified Huiyi Huiying of the data breach and said that a cyber hacker named "THE0TIME" is suspected to be the main suspect in the incident.
In addition, the hackers published the following data samples online:

The technology stolen by this hack is a novel coronavirus detection system based on artificial intelligence technology developed by Huiyi Huiying, which detects the profile of suspected pneumonia in CT chest DICOM images and identifies symptoms of novel coronavirus infection.
In the case of customer Huawei, for example, the system is currently officially priced at $50,000 per month.
Founded in April 2015, Huiyi Huiying, headquartered in Beijing with branches in Silicon Valley, Hong Kong, Suzhou, and Guangzhou, is a global medical imaging artificial intelligence high-tech enterprise dedicated to computer vision and deep learning technology applications.
Huiyi Huiying is based on artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, and other new technologies, providing a complete set of patient-centered clinical diagnosis and medical data analysis solutions to create digital, mobile and intelligent medical imaging.
Huiyi Huiying has completed scientific research and clinical cooperation with more than 800 top hospitals in China, including the People's Liberation Army General Hospital, Beijing Concord Hospital, Beijing Friendship Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences Oncology Hospital, Peking University Oncology Hospital, Zhengzhou University Third Affiliated Hospital, Ordos Medical Consortium, and other well-known large hospitals.
Huiyi Huiying has raised 5 rounds of funding since its inception, including Intel, Dinghui Capital, Datai Capital, Lanchi Venture Partners and other well-known institutions are its investors.
After graduating from Tsinghua University, Huiyi Huiying's founder and CEO Chai Xiangfei went on to study in Europe, pursuing his master's and doctoral degrees at the University of Leuven Medical Imaging Center in Belgium and the Cancer Research Center at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, where he was taught by Paul Suetens, one of the founders of CT recombination algorithms, and Marcel van Herk, one of the world's top image guidance scientists.
After his PhD, Chai Xiangfei worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University Cancer Research Center, where he continued his research in imaging under the guidance of Dr. Lei Xing, a tenured professor at Stanford University and director of the Stanford University Center for Medical Physics.
During his PhD, Chai Xiangfei published a total of 7 papers in top imaging journals with an impact factor of >20.
During his post-doctoral period, he led the development team to build the image cloud platform and radiotherapy cloud platform for remote collaboration and big data analysis and made several outstanding contributions in the field of image recognition.
Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Chai Xiangfei has led his Huiyi Huiying team to make outstanding contributions in many ways as well.
For example, Dr. Turing, a new AI-assisted coronavirus screening system jointly developed with Sun Yat-sen University Hospital No. 5, can greatly improve the efficiency of diagnostic reading, realizing the "scientific research + clinical" effect of artificial intelligence technology.
