News flash even the least-private NHS trusts/boards/CCGs have to work with a lot of private companies and in this case it was the sub contractor of one of those companies (IT supplier to the datacentre) which was responsible for the breach, which was more than likely an automated malware attack using a well known attack vector which WOULD have been blocked if the contractor hadn't disabled malware protection on the server.
