    Hackers with suspected links to the Chinese government have stolen information about 4.5 million people, according to Community Health Systems in Illinois, one of the largest hospital networks in America. The alleged culprits—known as APT 18—seized names, addresses, phone numbers, birthdays and Social Security numbers, but no credit card numbers or health information. The FBI is investigating the operation, which could be an attempt at mass identity theft.
