Well, at least we made it one month into 2015 without any major data breaches. Anthem, the U.S.' second-largest health insurer, has been hacked.
The company released a statement saying it was the target of a "very sophisticated external cyber attack."
So far, Anthem is saying compromised information includes names, dates of birth, member IDs, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, employment information and Social Security numbers.
