Second Largest Health Insurer In The US Hacked

Hackers have made off with the personal information of as many as 80 million current and former members of Anthem, the number two health insurer in the United States. frown

Anthem was the target of a very sophisticated external cyber attack. These attackers gained unauthorized access to Anthem’s IT system and have obtained personal information from our current and former members such as their names, birthdays, medical IDs/social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data. Based on what we know now, there is no evidence that credit card or medical information, such as claims, test results or diagnostic codes were targeted or compromised.
