10:41 EDTCYHCommunity Health discloses personal data compromised in cyber attack
Earlier today, Community Health (CYH) disclosed in a filing that in July Community Health Systems confirmed that its computer network was the target of an external, criminal cyber attack that the company believes occurred in April and June. The company and its forensic expert, Mandiant, a FireEye company (FEYE), believe the attacker was an “Advanced Persistent Threat” group originating from China who used highly sophisticated malware and technology to attack the company’s systems.The company has been informed by federal authorities and Mandiant that this intruder has typically sought valuable intellectual property, such as medical device and equipment development data. However, in this instance the data transferred was non-medical patient identification data related to the company’s physician practice operations and affected approximately 4.5M individuals who, in the last five years, were referred for or received services from physicians affiliated with the company. The company has confirmed that this data did not include patient credit card, medical or clinical information; the data is, however, considered protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act because it includes patient names, addresses, birthdates, telephone numbers and social security numbers. The company does not believe this incident will have a material adverse effect on its business or financial results.
