The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has revealed that some of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine data stolen from its servers in December was leaked online, according to BleepingComputer.

The ongoing investigation of the cyberattack on EMA revealed that some of the unlawfully accessed documents related to COVID-19 medicines and vaccines belonging to third parties have been leaked on the internet. Necessary action is being taken by the law enforcement authorities

EMA also said that the European medicines regulatory network is fully functional and COVID-19 evaluation and approval timelines are not affected by the incident.

In addition, sources in the cybersecurity intelligence community revealed to BleepingComputer that the leaked stolen data includes email screenshots, EMA peer review comments, Word documents, PDFs, and PowerPoint presentations.

Nevertheless, the investigation found that only a limited number of documents were accessed without authorization.
