A US-based prescription processing and benefits firm has taken the unusual step of offering a $1m bounty for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of an unknown group which targeted it in a cyber-extortion scam.

Going public etc
It's good to see a company actually owning up to and taking responsibility for its failure to protect customers' information instead of trying to bury its head in the sand or conceal the facts.
I hope the extortionists get all they deserve.

Execution by firing squad.
Also, to Express Scripts: FIX THE DAMN SYSTEM!
