Peachtree Orthopedics has experienced a huge data breach that affects over 500,000 patients.  It seems that Peachtree was a victim of a hacker who stole the information and went a step further by issuing a press release:

It all began many months ago when we acquired 543k patient records which contain both PII and PHI – well before the date of breach notice and alleged date of breach. 543,879 records for anyone counting. Oh, the things one could do with so much data! Some of you have been so kind as to suggest what to do with it all (Hello, ICIT!).
