In a “Flash” alert obtained by Reuters on Wednesday, the agency said, “The FBI has observed malicious actors targeting healthcare related systems, perhaps for the purpose of obtaining Protected Healthcare Information and/or Personally Identifiable Information.” The FBI and Department of Homeland Security periodically release such alerts to provide U.S. businesses with technical information they can use to either prevent or identify cyber attacks.
