Hackers compromised the email accounts of three UC Davis doctors last month, potentially gaining access to personal or medical information on as many as 1,800 patients, the university announced Monday.

The UC Davis Health System said it has begun notifying the 1,800 patients who may have been affected.

The university said the hackers weren’t able to penetrate patients’ electronic medical records or gain access to any credit card or Social Security numbers.
