What, you expected a barely functioning website to be safe from hackers?
The ObamaCare website is ‘easy’ to hack and has become the focus of security concerns as the second year of enrolment approaches.
The healthcare website is one of the largest federal collection of personal information ever assembled and concerns have been raised about the security of the data kept there.
The website requires those enrolling for ObamaCare to supply their first and last name, home address, social security number and paying information – including credit card data.
Lamar Smith, chair of the committee looking after the security of the website, said there had been hearings on the ‘lack of security’ around the website.
He told Fox News: ‘What we’ve discovered is that it seems to be easy to be hacked, the security is not secure.’
Adding to the concerns was that the website was hacked on July 8, but the security breach wasn’t discovered until August 25.
Just wait until premiums skyrocket when the politically-delayed enrollment period begins.
One security specialist, David Kennedy, warned that hacking cases had risen 400 per cent this year alone, saying ‘it’s a mess out there right now’.
Just like Obama’s party a week out from the midterms.
