Skip to comments.Computer Security Expert: Obamacare Website Security ‘Much Worse Off’ Than Before

The Obamacare website is even less secure than it was in November, David Kennedy, head of computer security consulting firm TrustedSec LLC, told Fox News Sunday.
Kennedy testified before Congress Thursday that the site was 100 percent insecure and personal information for consumers at healthcare.gov was at risk, Reuters reports:
Before the hearing, Kennedy told Reuters the government has yet to plug more than 20 vulnerabilities that he and other security experts reported to the government shortly after HealthCare.gov went live on October 1. Hackers could steal personal information, modify data, attack the personal computers of website users and damage the infrastructure of the site, Kennedy said in an interview.
He expanded on his conclusions Sunday in an interview with Chris Wallace, calling it much worse than what he and other experts saw in November.
What we learned was that they had rushed through what we call the software development life cycle where they actually build the application, Kennedy said. So when you do that, security doesnt really get integrated into it. And what happened with the rocky launch in October is they slapped a bunch of servers in trying to fix the website just to keep it up and running so that people could actually go and use it. The problem is they still didnt imbed any security into it.(continued)

The commie left had to do whatever they could to stop the embarrassment. If everyone’s identity is put in jeopardy, so be it. At least they were able to stop FNC from picking on them and their goofy healthcare scam.
In a couple more months healthcare.gov will just send your personal info directly to the Ukraine and Nigeria.
The most incompetent administration in history.
If obammie had a hacker son...
Not just hypocrisy but insanity.
