The Mercury News

Health insurer Anthem Inc. revealed Wednesday that it was the recent victim of a “very sophisticated external cyber attack” and that hackers broke into a database containing personal information for several million customers and employees, some of whom reside in California.

While investigators are still working to determine just how many people were affected, the attack, which was discovered sometime last week, likely resulted in more than 80 million records being stolen.
