Company Community Health Systems (CHS) has notified its investors that its computer systems were target of a cyber attack. CHS operates 206 hospitals in 29 U.S states. The attack occurred in April and July 2014 and resulted in loss of data of approximately 4.5 million customers. The leaked data did not contain any medical or financial records but included names, addresses, phone numbers and social security numbers. Security company Mandiant which is investigating the breach claims that the perpetrators of the advanced attack are probably of Chinese origin.
