Heartbleed not only reason for CHS breach

Dark Reading, August 21, 2014

A security researcher has announced that the notorious OpenSSL bug,Heartbleed, was the initial point of entry for the attack on Community Health Systems (CHS) that netted 4.5 million identity records -- but other researchers point out that Heartbleed is only the beginning of the problem. David Kennedy, CEO of TrustedSec, first announced Heartbleed's involvement on Fox News and in a TrustedSec blog post Wednesday afternoon. Kennedy says he had this confirmed by three people close to the incident, who remain anonymous. CHS has not yet publicly confirmed this and could not be reached for comment as of press time.
