Government and independent investigators say the attack bore characteristics of previous state-sponsored hacks from China.By Evan Thomas | February 6, 2015
Investigators looking in to a Wednesday hack on Anthem say it could be a state-sponsored attack, and they named China as an "early suspect."
Bloomberg cites government officials who say the breach looks to be the work of foreign attackers "seeking a pathway into the personal lives and computers of a select group — defense contractors, government workers and others."
Independent security firms share the hunch.
