Cyberattack Affects 1.1 Million CareFirst Members
Posted in: News
CareFirst announced on May 20, 2015 that they have become a victim of a sophisticated cyberattack in June 2014.
It has been determined that the attackers only accessed a single CareFirst database, which contained members’ usernames, birth dates, emails addresses and subscriber identification numbers. Fortunately, the most sensitive personal information, such as Social Security numbers, medical records, credit card numbers, financial data, and passwords were not compromised.
