(Reuters) – Community Health Systems Inc (CYH.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), one of the biggest U.S. hospital groups, said on Monday it was the victim of a cyber attack from China, resulting in the theft of Social Security numbers and other personal data belonging to 4.5 million patients.
That would make the attack the largest of its type involving patient information since a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website started tracking such breaches in 2009. The previous record, an attack on a Montana Department of Public Health server, was disclosed in June and affected about 1 million people.

LAS VEGAS, Aug 8 (Reuters) – A group of well-known hackers
and security professionals are trying to build better ties with
the auto industry in an effort to enlist their help in improving
vehicle security, one of the hottest areas of cyber research.
The non-profit group, known as “I am the Calvary,” is asking
attendees at this weekend’s Def Con hacking conference in Las
Vegas to sign an open letter to “Automotive CEOs” to ask them to
