UnitedHealth cyberattack compromised credit cards, health history, Social Security numbers

Individuals affected by the cyberattack, which could number more than 100 million, will start receiving notice in late July

Hackers made off with Social Security numbers, credit card information, medical histories and more in the February cyberattack on a UnitedHealth Group subsidiary, the company disclosed Thursday.

The Minnetonka-based health care behemoth revealed greater detail on the type of consumer data compromised and a timeline for contacting those affected in a filing to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and a news release.

As many as one-third of all Americans may have had some or all of that data swiped, but a full picture of who was affected and in what way is still not available. The company said it began notifying affected corporate customers Thursday, but it could take until late July for individuals to begin receiving notice.
