CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield has announced that the company has been the target of a sophisticated cyberattack.

According to the company, the attackers gained limited, unauthorized access to a single CareFirst database. The company said that this was discovered as a part of the company’s ongoing information technology (“IT”) security efforts in the wake of recent cyberattacks on health insurers. CareFirst said that it had engaged Mandiant to conduct an end-to-end examination of its IT environment, including multiple, comprehensive scans of CareFirst’s IT systems for any evidence of a cyberattack.
