Highmark - Related to Anthem Attack

More than 51,000 current Highmark health insurance customers in Pennsylvania will receive letters this week notifying them that their personal information may have been stolen as part of the larger Anthem Inc. data heist.

Those customers are in Highmark’s Western and Central Pennsylvania markets, 49 counties in all. “Letters are going out now,” spokesman Aaron Billger said.

What is interesting is that Highmark has been noted in Open Source feeds as having compromised systems in the past as well. This may have been part of the vectors used to gain access to Anthem and deserves a second look.
