It's Queen time...
Another one bites the dust. :(
Health insurance company Excellus said hackers broke into its servers and may have made off with the personal details of 10.5 million people. The insurance firm said the information belongs to customers who lived in or sought treatment in the upstate New York area. The breach exposed the personal information of 7 million …
"Excellus said it was working with the FBI"
Whoops, those idiots can only work with "Future Crimes" they happen to find in Internet chat rooms, like the swiftly averted Massive Polar Bear Attack of 2012!
This is another example of managers saving a buck, at the expense of some helpless customers later on! (Wow! That's just super super sad) Let's do bugger-all about security then we we get hacked and notice it two full years later we can offer the victims some cheap identity checking service and go on about our business of doing the same thing again. And again. And again. 100% it's dopey managers. Most admins I know are security sensible, most managers are into cutting corners and doing it FAST, not well.
Trying to figure out a crime that already happened isn't in the FBI wheelhouse. They are super good with investigating song lyrics though. Top guys when crimes might be hiding in song lyrics!
Let's connect all these systems together using mandated legislation nobody ever read, voted in by politicians that don't know the difference between an email client and server, and are not able to tell "Classified Top Secret" data from unclassified personal emails, even though it was two separate computer systems, one of which was clearly labeled as a secure network, so the only way to take information off is to manually key it in.
I'd say that no one's that stupid, but, hey, it *is* the law of the land these days.
