If you’ve been to the hospital within the last five years, the latest incidence of national cyber attack just may affect you. Earlier today, Community Health Systems announced that its systems were hacked, compromising the information of 4.5 million patients.
Community Health Systems is one of the nation’s largest hospital networks, with 206 hospitals in 29 states.
The data breach affects anyone treated by a physician connected to the Community Health Systems network in the last five years.
In a statement to Reuters, an official of CHS said it was too soon to confirm what group was behind the attack.
