Gerald Giam blasts MOH over ‘most disturbing and sickening’ HIV Registry data theft

Gerald Giam

The alleged theft and leak of highly sensitive medical information from MOH’s HIV Registry is most disturbing and sickening. It beggars belief how one individual was able to download 14,200 patient records if he was using an end user’s account (ie, a doctor’s account) and was not a system administrator. Can end users still export out so many records at one go? And why did it take more than 2 years for MOH to notify the affected individuals of the data theft?

    A minister mentioned that “it’s not in our National’s interest to reveal hackers” in a recent case.

    So what, when 14,000 patients’ data were downloaded, the hacking case involved 1.5M patients, including that of the PM’s.

    I can see problems not only in MOH, but also in almost in every govt agency. In this case, what about MOM and the Poly that employed this data thief? How and why MOM and Poly did not verify the person’s credentials and health.

    My take is MOM depended on Poly to check and Poly depended on MOM to check. I am sure anyone who first joins any company, he/she must passed the medical check-up first before employment was to take place. Why was the Poly did not do that? Because MOM said OK?

    Let’s stop this rotting now, yes NOW!! This GE is the last chance!!

  • Harder Truths:

    The gahmen waited until the USA FT was able to be deported before informing people.

    That way they can pretend they are trying to get him back to face charges – when in fact they purposely let him go to avoid having to face US wrath for daring to charge one of its citizens.

    This wayang of letting him go intentionally and crying wolf later cannot happen if the story was made public at that time.

    The same applied to the FT bank robber who took his own sweet time to leave $G. Can anyone believe he would not be recognised before leaving $G?

    The ballsless pappies can only bully ballsless SG locals – FT are off-limits.

    The shocking number of foreigners with HIV is one issue.

    Now, I come from a workplace where I do get in contact with a couple of LGBT-type of people, but they are talented, have no public agenda and work twice as hard to build cordial, professional relationships and I respect that. The thing is it beggars my belief that a homo doctor can be in charge of a HIV database. To me, that somehow sounds an alarm of ‘negative’ conflict of interest.

    Because of this ‘loophole’, the American of questionable character was also able to obtain the database. This is just appallingly mad. Gan should go to jail in disgrace!

    Pity Minister Heng Heng who will be the next PeeM cum seatwarmer when Mai Hum decides to quickly exit the stuffy and damn hot kitchen. There are TELLTALE REPERCUSSIONS and EFFECTS as a RESULT of the lots and lots of Mother of All SMELLY shits(FamiLEE saga at 38 Oxtail Rd, MOH Hep C death and hacking incident, ongoing airspace and maritime dispute with Dr M, deaths of young NSmen, suing of Mai Hum nephew Li SW, suing of Uncle Leong, loss of $billions by Tombmasek and GIF, poor economy as a result of being snubbed by D Trump and Presdient XJP, etc)that are created and left behind by World Highest Pay PeeM, Mai Hum, for Heng Heng to carry and CLEAR & CLEAN!

    Think Those squatting in the CEC must be ordered by the ONE HAND that covers the HOLE SKY in SinKapore in the last CEC Meeting to vote for Heng Heng instead of his close relative Hum Kar Chan aka Bugs Bunny Chan to handle all those smelly shits. With his medical conditions, Heng Heng might just last an expected SHORT duration squatting temporarily on the Imperial Throne! One or two years of warming his arse, drop his pants oops drop DEAD to make way for Bugs Bunny! 69.9% what do you think?

    hahaha when you see how pinky coverment got done in by their simported trash pets.
    As usual, they let off their pet easily, thinking he would be kuai kuai then they can sweep everything under the carpet n resume business as usual. Well they could not be more wrong with their foreign pets Serve them right they got bitten back by their foreign pet who is nothing but a lowlife opportunist ingrate.

    Scary to think another negligence fiasco happened and if the foreign bugger didn’t upload the stolen data in the net after his deportation , the pinky coverment would have succeeded in non disclosure.

    IMO, the hard truth is PINKY COVERMENT AND FOREIGNERS and NOT SGs commit more crimes.

    dont be like pap and help propagate their sue culture.

    go online to kpkb and rant, to let off some some pent up anger is good for sinkies’ well-being..otherwise keeping it all inside your body will burst one’s blood vessels, die of heart attack or kanna a stroke.

    kanna stroke is one of the worst thing that can happen to a sinkie…half dead half alive and made even worst – money no enough.

    JUST remember to do the needful. do not vote for the pap at EVERY election will be a more powerful option.

  • Perspective:

    The high numbers of HIV-infected individuals could be due to the flourishing sex-trade and liberal immigration policy. These sex-workers come into the country as tourists on short-term stay to ply their trade undetected. FTs with pre-existing HIV condition could have passed through immigration with fake health papers or cheated on the blood test by using another person’s blood. Perhaps, a syndicate is behind this falsification of HIV-test result. The loopholes have to be plugged. The figures are alarming for a small country and because HIV is a closely guarded secret, you can’t tell who is infected unless there is a HIV-registry(similar to a Marriage Registry) that the public have limited access to under certain circumstances.

    another anti WP apek talking. telling Singapore that there are good people like Gerald Giam inside the WP. many thanks hor!

    election is coming how about telling sinkies how pap had been relentlessly song song screwing your ass so that many more sinkies will be convinced to vote out the PAP at the coming GE instead of scoring the opposition movement’s own goal by taking down the WP.

    you want WP to be out of parliament and then another opp party to replace them? then its all back to square one, lan par par lan.

    another opp party replacing the WP will also be outnumbered by the PAP in parliament. bang table table kicking up a storm by talking incessantly but nothing will move. outnumbered by the PAP again.

    get this into you head, we want more (not lesser) opposition politicians even if they are not from the same party inside the parliament.

    intellectually ah? blue and white and whatever colour it may be, common sense it should be lah!

    here is a latest breaking news for you digest intellectually lah!

    benjamin pwee ex DPP chief is resigning to join a bigger more effective party.

    everybody is guessing which party he is joining. any of the big party will be ok. this will make you happy, it is ok if he joins SDP. its also ok if he joins the WP.

    you surely will not be happy if he joins the WP? anyway…he had made the decision and it is firmed already. i foresee if he join the SDP it will give you ammo to whack the WP. and if he join the WP you off course will whack the WP and says pwee made a wrong decision. i know your type very well.

    quote >> Said the business consultant: “The opposition scene is a big ‘pasar malam’ of small political parties, ineffective in resources, effort and size. I am taking the lead to step out of a small political party, to join a bigger, more effective one.”

    He also urged other opposition members to “urgently consolidate behind a few key established credible leaders” so at least one-third of the House will have opposition representation.

    “This will never happen with a fragmented opposition based on personality-led politics,” he said.

    mister intellectual, read slowy and carefully so as not to be sidetracked by your unenlightened tunnel vision mindset.

  • own approach of voicing out:

    //Can you say WP voiced up more or Hong Lim park protesters and the many bloggers?//

    aiyoh. everyone has their own approach of voicing out (of the lack of it lar but exercised their silent disagreeable voice by voting) lar. some form parties (many parties also good) lar – it will divide & distract the white idiots’ focus also lar – and let their white idiotic IBs spread thinly and spew rubbish lar.

    don’t worry lar. the white idiots have sowed too many conditions for a lot of things to happen lar and their white idiotic IBs can only come out with spurious excuses not knowing (or know but bo chap as long as they get paid lar, such standard hor ?) that they are the very problems.

    what talking you?

    The man is saying that the more opposition party politicians, even if they are made up of oppo politicians from the different oppo parties are voted into parliament it is a good thing for the opposition movement to counter the PAP. So you do not agree and is against such a scenario.

    What is this ‘intellectually’, partisan, winning debate, bias and fanatic thing that you wrote? What are you are yakking about?
