    Well fax machines aren’t connected to the internet, so mass hacking attempts won’t work – unlike the rest of the NHS! Since they transmit data via audible tones on ordinary phone lines it should be possible to intercept a fax, but you would need physical access to either the sender or recipients line. And, as with operating systems, the crooks go for the easy targets with the greatest user base, so tend to leave smaller niche markets alone.
