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.

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?
