Community Health Systems Inc. said Monday that its computer network was “the target of an external criminal cyberattack” between April and June that may have compromised the personal data of 4.5 million patients.

“The Company and its forensic expert, Mandiant (a FireEye Company), believe the attacker was an “advanced persistent threat” group originating from China who used highly sophisticated malware and technology to attack the Company’s systems,” Franklin, TN-based CHS said in a Form 8-K filing Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
