Hackers Breach Healthcare.gov, access the data of 75,000 users

“Hackers accessed sensitive personal data of more than 75,000 Healthcare.gov customers after one of its systems was breached, according to a Friday statement by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. According to the statement, CMS officials detected ‘anomalous system activity’ in the Federally Facilitated Exchanges system—one that health care insurance agents and brokers use to enroll users in Affordable Care Act plans—on Oct. 13 and confirmed the incident three days later. CMS officials said they are working to identify and help those whose data was compromised while federal law enforcement conducts an investigation into the breach. The statement did not address who might have been behind the hack or what could be done with the compromised data,”
