WellPoint Inc., the nation's second-largest health insurer, agreed to pay a fine of $1.7 million to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for allowing health records and other personal information from hundreds of thousands of people to be accessed over the Internet, Reuters reported. Security weaknesses in a WellPoint online application database exposed information for 612,402 individuals between October 2009 and March 2010, according to the agency. Data included names, dates of birth, addresses, Social Security numbers, telephone numbers and health information. The Indianapolis-based insurer said it informed those who were potentially impacted and has cooperated with the review. WellPoint said it also provided credit monitoring and identity theft insurance to all those affected, and that it is not aware of any fraud or identity theft arising from the incident.
