SALT LAKE CITY – An additional 750,000 people had their personal information stolen by hackers, state health officials said Monday after discovering that the thieves downloaded thousands more files of data than authorities initially believed.
Officials originally estimated that about 24,000 people had their records stolen after a computer tracked to Eastern Europe infiltrated a server beginning March 30, then changed that number to 182,000 victims.
Health officials now believe a total of nearly 900,000 people have had their personal data stolen.
Aside from the obvious punishment of the perpetrators, when will they prosecute the ones responsible for the "security" systems that are bought and paid for ?
Perhaps all these "hacks" are made easier because of tip-offs from "secure" areas ?
