Medical Info More Valuable Than Credit

Hackers are attacking your medical info instead of your credit card info, according to this report. Three things I have to say about that:

One, they have already hacked every credit card system and retail operation that they can. They have billions of credit card data.

Two, I guess medical info will be used for identity fraud (probably by people who are looking to enter the country illegally.)

Three, medical systems are probably easier to hack right now. Older systems and not nearly the level of security that we see in banking. So there is a big opportunity to sell security.
