Security Fail: Major Hacking Threat With Healthcare.Gov
Carol Platt Liebau | Nov 19, 2013

As it turns out, there are some pretty serious issues with cyber security on Healthcare.gov:
 
This report reveals that Henry Chao, the official responsible for building Healthcare.gov, was not informed of serious security risks to the site, including the possibility of identity theft; unauthorized access; and misrouted data.

A CMS memo -- which Chao told congressional staff he had never seen -- concluded that "the threat and risk potential" to the healthcare site "is limitless." But don't worry, folks, the administration plans to have it all fixed by May 31, 2014 . . . or by February of 2015!

If that isn't scary enough, Fox News reports that a security expert has testified to a congressional subcommittee that "the [Healthcare.gov] web site has been hacked already or will be soon." Indeed, the four experts who testified to the subcommittee opined that, because of the security issues, Americans shouldn't even be using the site at present.

Apparently, the problem is that -- if you can believe it! -- security wasn't built into Healthcare.gov from the beginning. Now, it's a matter of trying to graft on some protective measures.

Just another, massive ObamaCare FAIL.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I wish I had the exact quote and who said it, but FOX yesterday played one of Obama’s toadies saying there is no danger of the website being hacked or private information being stolen, because of all the security safeguards.    We all know that is BS – and the comment alone is a very inviting invitation for hackers everywhere.
A nation that turns away from prayer will ultimately find itself in desperate need of it. :Jonathan Cahn
