    PLEASE--we need some reporting here

    Dear El' Reg,

    2) A statement revealing about how their systems were compromised.

    3) Any indication of the nature of the records that were exfiltrated.

    Nevermind a post-mortem or RCA.

    In fact, UHC has stopped updating the status page for the incident. It is redirecting to a page that someone without background information might entirely miss the fact that there was an actual compromise of data.

    We DESPERATELY need the press (that would be you) to hold UHC's feet to the fire on this. Summarizing press releases is not reporting.
