The man who appeared before Congress last week to explain the security pitfalls of HealthCare.gov took to Fox News on Sunday to explain just how easy it was to penetrate the website.
Hacking expert David Kennedy told Foxs Chris Wallace that gaining access to 70,000 personal records of Obamacare enrollees via HealthCare.gov took about 4 minutes and required nothing more than a standard browser, the Daily Caller reported.
And 70,000 was just one of the numbers that I was able to go up to and I stopped after that, he said. You know, Im sure its hundreds of thousands, if not more, and it was done within about a 4 minute timeframe. So, its just wide open.

Jes’ dedistributin’ the welf.
But that’s what Nanzi said, “You have to hack the computer
to find out what’s in it.”
Network News wil be all over this tonight like they cover the Target security problems...right?
I believe you have identified the source of much of our problems.
> Hey Pelosi, looks anyone with a computer can find out everything that’s in it now.
No wonder Reid and Pelosi wanted to be exempt from it...
Love this. Experts all over have been warning the site is a hacker’s Fantasy Island, while the Administration has been spending millions imploring people to go there. Can’t wait to see the Obama presser when thousands of Americans find their credit and debit cards are being used in Caracas or Moscow.
On Fox News Sunday, he said he didn’t even have to hack into healthcare.gov. All that information was visible without any hacking.
Must have done SQL injection?
To bad he didn’t get the information Obama used to enroll. That would have been priceless. On second thought I wonder if he even has an account to hack.
I would think a kid with a Tandy computer and a floppy disk could hack that mess.
...because he had to go get a cup of coffee before he finished.
So are the Democrats going to be held responsible if anyone’s identity is hacked?? snort
There are some well known hacks of the open source code they used.
The GOP is trying to push a law requiring the Govt to notify anyone who has their information stolen.
The Dems are pushing back and trying to keep it a secret.
Bwahaha! The Dim's won't even back a law that came up that would require them to inform those in the database who are compromised.
>> I believe you have identified the source of much of our problems.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
