Community Health Systems update: As previously reported, CHS was hacked.  The sequelae has started: one of the community hospitals in New Mexico has been sued, and the attorneys are seeking class certification.

The lesson here is that the severity of the breach and the actual harm caused by loss of confidentiality may be miniscule compared to the legal costs of just fighting a thousand different plantiff's lawyers.
