'Everybody Is Just Scrambling': Nationwide Cyber Attack Delays Bay Area Pharmacy Orders


People across the Bay Area are clamoring to fill essential medications after a cyber attack last Wednesday disrupted data transmission lines between health care providers, insurance companies and pharmacies.

East Bay resident Alison Hightower is among them.
