A note on the Anthem Blue Cross breach
Last week, several news sources such as WMUR reported that Anthem Blue Cross was notifying 10,000 healthcare professionals in New Hampshire that their personal information was on a stolen laptop. That news story was correct, but some sites seem to have picked up the story as if it was a new incident or breach.
New Hampshire Anthem Blue Cross spokesperson Chris Dugan confirmed to me that the 10,000 was part of the larger national Blue Cross Blue Shield breach that occurred in August and was first reported in September. It is not a separate or new incident.
