Skip to comments.Hacker: No Security Was Ever Built Into Obamacare Site

Cybersecurity expert and TrustedSec CEO David Kennedy blasted HealthCare.govs security features, saying no security was ever built into the website.
When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesnt appear to have happened this time, Kennedy said, appearing on CNBCs Squawk Box. Its really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasnt built into it.
Kennedy concluded that it would take multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on the website itself.
If you like your personal financial identity you can keep your personal financial identity PERIOD.
Bwahahahahaha. So glad I haven’t even gone to the site, none of my family has as far as I know, Thanksgiving was a great liberal bashing meat eating football watching fantastic time.
The people who are going to use the site aren’t worried about having their identity stolen, they have nothing to lose.
I would rather lose *some* of my money than *all* of it.... for if I ever submit my information to healthcare.gov, it will end up in Indonesia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Russia and China by nightfall.
And I say this as someone who has had 25 years in the computer industry, many of them in development in the government arena.
Whenever I see this paper referenced I see Washington Free Bacon.I kid you not!
Now, *that* could convince me. LOL
That's BS. My son is employed with good insurance until the end of the year. His employer is a small employer and told the employees to go on the exchange and see what they can find.
My son builds web sites on the side. He has plenty of knowledge about security but what is he supposed to do, not have insurance. He has a 3 1/2 year old autistic son with a platelet disorder. He has good credit and a little money so don't say that people that go there have nothing to loose.
My employer says we have insurance for another year. After that, I doubt we will. There are plenty of good Americans that will have no choice but to go on the exchanges.
I do feel for those who have no choice. They *will* be losing all their identity information. GUARANTEED.
“Thanksgiving was a great liberal bashing meat eating football watching fantastic time.”
lol same here! There’s still hope!
I hate to say it Mark and everyone but just wait till the dreaded *Single Payer*
Since it’s the government, you have no recourse. You lose. They tell you to go to hell.
Had enough of the fascism?
Well of COURSE there is no security in the website! I mean like DUH! How would crooks rip off your ID then?
I wonder if state exchanges are any better..
We keep hearing about the federal exchange but I wonder if the same issues are a problem for the states.
Regardless of front-end problems that may or may not exist by state, they will all share the same back-end problems, as they all have to be linked for data (X12 or some other type of EDI interface standard).
