Express Scripts Reports New Threats Tied to Data Security Breach

The letters, which were received by Express Scriptsâ€™ clients in the past few days, are similar in form to the one that Express Scripts said it received in early October from an unknown person or persons threatening to publicly expose millions of the companyâ€™s membersâ€™ records if an extortion threat was not met.
