Daily Briefing: Singapore HealthHub hit by 27,000 unusual log-in attempts; Three firms sanctioned over supply of luxury goods to North Korea

And here's a new delivery scheme for Lazada customers.

From Yahoo! News Singapore:

Investigations by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) and the Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS) revealed that more than 27,000 unusual attempts on log-ins were detected in the HealthHub portal over four days in September and October.

The probe was done after a user raised the alarm over an unauthorised use of her e-mail account to log-in to the portal.

“Based on the suspicious volume of email addresses not related to HealthHub account IDs and the repeated attempts, it is likely that the volume of email addresses used had been obtained from external sources. No evidence of a breach in the HealthHub system has been found,” said the statement.

The agencies added that unusual log-in attempts and access were limited to the basic tier of HealthHub. This contains the user’s self-populated profile and any Healthpoints accumulated through participation in HPB programmes.

From Reuters:

Three Singapore-registered firms linked to Chong - SCN Singapore, Laurich International, and Sindok Trading, alongside one Singaporean and a North Korean were charged in court for supplying prohibited luxury items to North Korea.

“Singapore takes its obligations under the United Nations Security Council resolutions seriously and implements them fully and faithfully,” the police said in a statement.

“We will not hesitate to take action against any individual or entity that breaches our laws and regulations.”

From Channel News Asia:

Lazada customers may now opt to get their orders delivered to 7-Eleven outlets across Singapore instead of having to wait at home for the delivery.

The new parcel collection service will be available at 159 7-Eleven stores from 18 October, and will be rolled out to the rest of the 350 participating outlets by the end of the year.

“With a 7-Eleven within reach of most Singaporeans, this provides consumers with an unparalleled number of locations to collect their parcels,” Lazada, Ninja Van and 7-Eleven said in a joint press release.

Parcels eligible for the 7-Eleven delivery service must weigh under 5kg. Packages must also be a maximum 80cm in width, height and length.
