Hackers hack confidential information and drop it on the public like mixtapes weekly and it’s happened again.

Now Russian hackers are leaking confidential medical files of star US Olympic athletes.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) has condemned the hack that has exposed tennis players Venus and Serena Williams and gymnast Simone Biles.

The leaked documents allege that Serena Williams was granted permission to use drugs commonly used to treat muscle injuries, such as anti-inflammatories, while Biles is said to use Ritalin – a treatment for her ADHD, which they called an “illicit psycho-stimulant.”

Fancy Bears” is the hacking group responsible for the hack of the “Wada” database that revealed Biles has had taking medicine for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The quadruple gold medalist was given permission to take prescription medicine on the “Wada” banned drugs list, stated by USA Gymnastics.

The hackers accessed records detailing “Therapeutic Use Exemptions” (TUEs), which allow the use of banned substances due to athletes’ verified medical needs.

“By virtue of the TUE, Biles has not broken any drug-testing regulations, including at the Olympic Games in Rio,” USA Gymnastics said.

Fancy Bears said TUEs amount to “licences for doping”.

Former – Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority head Richard Ings said: “Nothing I see here gives me cause for alarm,” adding it looked “totally normal”.

The issue here is privacy breach.”
