It was #WellnessWednesday, and there was a post about safe eyesight practices and computer use.
But not all was well at CareFirst.
A company press release on GlobeNewsWire offers details about the breach at CareFirst, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. It reads, in part:
Approximately 1.1 million current and former CareFirst members and individuals who do business with CareFirst online who registered to use CareFirst’s websites prior to June 20, 2014, are affected by this event. Out of an abundance of caution, CareFirst has blocked member access to these accounts and will request that members create new user names and passwords.
