Hackers hawk stolen health insurance data

The phrase "health insurance" may conjure up images of medical bills for some people, but for hackers it leads only to visions of dollar signs. According to Dell SecureWorks, health insurance information ranging from contract numbers to the type of plan a customer has purchased is increasingly making its way into detailed dossiers of hacking victims that are being assembled and given to identity thieves in underground cyberforums. These packages of data on individual people, which also include verified bank account numbers and credentials, Social Security numbers, and other personally identifiable information, are known in the underground as "fullz."
