Healthcare and Hackers

See the original posting on DZone Python

At first, the typical criminal was a scary guy with a big gun who robbed banks and random victims in dark alleys. Then there were the black hat hackers capable of stealing money and personal information from financial organizations and countless people in the blink of an eye, without even leaving their homes. The internet has brought equality: it doesn’t matter if you are an investment banker in New York or the typical working-class family in the midwest, you run into the same risks of being hijacked by stealth criminals who hide behind their computers all over the world.  

As if that wasn’t enough to scare you, the latest trend in cyber threats is even more serious, because it doesn’t only threaten your money, but your very health—possibly even your life.
