One would have thought that the next hacker target after Target, Neiman Marcus, and Michaels would be, say, a bank.

Apparently not.  According to people who watch out for those things (thank you all), a likely target may be nursing homes.

“Nursing Homes Exposed To Attacks By Hackers,” Wall Street Journal, February 18, 2014 B1

The three nursing homes in New York all used the safe software company.  And their information showed up on a hackers’ server.  Go figure.

The risk is everywhere, and the price of all the internet connectivity must be eternal vigilance, eh?
