Federal prosecutors have charged two members of a China-based hacking group with targeting U.S. businesses- including Anthem.  The indictment states there has been a series of computer intrusions dating back to at least 2014, the Department of Justice announced on May 9th.

The incidents include the 2015 Anthem data breach, which potentially compromised the personal information of millions of people.   According to “Modern Healthcare,” late last year, Anthem agreed to pay a record $16 million settlement over the breach.  Which is the largest HIPAA settlement reached by the HHS’ Office for Civil Rights to date.

“The allegations in the indictment unsealed today outline the activities of a brazen China-based computer hacking group that committed one of the worst data breaches in history,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division said in a statement.”
