Security Update:

Hack Attack on Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield;  as many as 10 million people’s personal records exposed.

 

Last year, a hacker attacked the Excellus health insurance company.  It was confirmed that between 10 and 10.5 million customers had their data potentially stolen in the security breach.

Why is an attack a year ago still important?  Because, at this very moment, the hackers are selling these records and social security numbers on the DarkNet for $10 each. If you are one of the ten million victims potentially affected from insurance partners within the Blue Cross Blue Shield network, you should take care to change your passwords and monitor your transactions and credit.
