Data breach at health insurer could affect millions

INDIANAPOLIS (WREX) -

Anthem - the nation's second-largest health insurer - announced that hackers broke into its servers and stole Social Security numbers and other personal data from all of its business lines.

That would include those insured by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wisconsin.

Anthem did not specify how many customer records may have been breached, but reports suggest it could affect 80 million people nationwide.

The company CEO, Joseph R. Swedish, says in a statement Anthem is making every effort to close the security vulnerability and cooperating with an FBI investigation.
