NHS Appraisal website closed over hacker fears

12th February 2010

The NHS Appraisal Toolkit has been found to be vulnerable to hackers.

Following concerns raised, it has been taken offline after routine testing showed that certain aspects of the site were “not sufficiently robust to withstand modern day hacking.” The Department of Health said ministers had instructed that the website be taken offline immediately until the supplier, SCHIM, can address these “potential vulnerabilities” but has assured users that those who have already entered appraisal documentation into the ATK website will have it securely stored.
