Massive breach at health care company Anthem Inc


USA Today - (National) Anthem Inc., announced that it discovered a breach the week of January 26 which could potentially impact as many as 80 million customers across 14 States, after the company learned it was the target of a sophisticated external cyber-attack when hackers gained access to the company's computer systems and accessed patients' personal information, including Social Security numbers. Anthem is working to determine how many current and former customers were affected and assured the public that no credit card information was obtained.
