The Wall Street Journal: Feds indict Chinese national on hacking charges, including 2015 Anthem data theft

A Chinese national and an unnamed co-defendant were indicted on Thursday on computer hacking charges related to a campaign to breach large U.S. businesses, including the 2015 theft of data from health insurer Anthem Inc., the Justice Department said.

Fujie Wang, 32, and another individual were charged in a four-count indictment and are accused of working for what prosecutors described as “an extremely sophisticated hacking group operating in China.”

“The allegations in the indictment unsealed today outline the activities of a brazen China-based computer hacking group that committed one of the worst data breaches in history,” said U.S. assistant attorney general Brian Benczkowski in a statement.
