FILED AUGUST 18, 2014 UNITED STATES SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION FORM 8-K – COMMUNITY HEALTH SYSTEMS NETWORK HACKED, RECORDS OF NEARLY 4.5 MILLION PATIENTS STOLEN!
Hospital giant Community Health Systems said on Monday that the personal information of nearly 4.5 million patients was stolen by hackers in an network attack believed to originate from China. In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company, which operates 206 hospitals in 29 states, reported that In July 2014, Community Health Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) confirmed that its computer network was the target of an external, criminal cyber attack that the Company believes occurred in April and June, 2014.
The Company and its forensic expert, Mandiant (a FireEye Company), believe the attacker was an “Advanced Persistent Threat” group originating from China who used highly sophisticated malware and network technology to attack the Company’s systems – possibly from Chinese made network based equipment. The attacker was able to bypass the Company’s security measures and successfully copy and confidential transfer certain data outside the Company. US Federal authorities and Mandiant report that these attacks usually involve the theft of “valuable intellectual property, such as equipment and medical device development data,” but that non-medical patient identification information like names and addresses was stolen.
This is the latest in a string of recent U.S. cybersecurity network attacks. The U.S. Investigation Services (USIS), the main provider of background checks in the U.S., reported an attack on its corporate network earlier this month – possibly launched by a foreign power. Just another reason to stop buying cheap lower cost Chinese network equipment and reinvest in high quality superior Made in the USA, professional grade networking.
