Community Health Systems attacjed by Chinese Hackers

In August, Community Health Systems said information on 4.5 million patients was stolen in a cyber attack that may have originated in China. The data breach may have impacted anyone who was a patient in a CHS hospital during the last five years. Hackers may have obtained the patient names, birth dates, addresses, telephone and social security numbers. However, in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company said no credit card numbers or medical or clinical information were taken.
