Anthem Blue Cross data breach:
Insurance application information (including social security numbers) involving residents of the LA area may have been accessed
by attorneys suing Anthem Blue Cross in a class action lawsuit. As many as 230,000 people may have been affected. I doubt there will be any ID theft issues coming from this, and I'm not sure if there's even a HIPAA issue (depending on the information that was out there), but it's still a black eye for Anthem.
