“White Hat” Hacker David Kennedy Says … “No Security Ever Built into Obamacare Web Site”


WHAT A MESS … Get ready for the Identity Theft that is going to be a result of the Obamacare web site where no security was ever put in place …

From CNBC comes the following frightening revelations. The security issues with the beleaguered web site are even worse than thought. David Kennedy, a cybersecurity expert told CNBC the unthinkable, ”When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesn’t appear to have happened this time.”  He was then asked whether the site posed a risk to individuals personal information. Kennedy responded, putting your information on the Healthcare.gov web site puts yourself at risk. Since it is on the federal level, the government does not have to disclose that they have been hacked or a breach has occurred.

It could take a year to secure the risk of “high exposures” of personal information on the federal Obamacare online exchange, a cybersecurity expert told CNBC on Monday.

“When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesn’t appear to have happened this time,” said David Kennedy, a so-called “white hat” hacker who tests online security by breaching websites. He testified on Capitol Hill about the flaws of HealthCare.gov last week.

“It’s really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasn’t built into it,” said Kennedy, chief executive of TrustedSec. “We’re talking multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on the website itself.”

How did this government allow such a colossal failure to go forward that would put so many millions of Americans at risk of ID theft? In one respect, they are lucky that it was so poorly constructed that people could not get on to enroll and in turn have their info hacked.

      This is the result of choosing a contractor without a plan or using the required bidding process.

      This fiasco began with the Democrats in congress passing a law using all the tricks Harry Ried and Nancy Pelosi could find including outright bribes to members of their own party.

      The law violates the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution does not allow goverment at any level to mandated a product to be purchased by the people. Thanks to the liberal members of the Supreme Court, it was not declared so. For that, each and every one of them should loose their job.

      With over 2000 pages of law and now over 10,000 pages of regulations is it any surprise that a computer system has problems? How could anyone build a comprehensive computer system that functions properly from this mess of a law? It doesn’t help that an insider company with a poor track record was hired to make the attempt.

      People should NOT get on the site. It is dangerous to give this site any personal information. It is not protected and will never be properly protected unless it is built into the design.

      The best thing is to throw the whole thing out and begin with a new design. Better yet, Repeal the law and forget about it. There are ways to give those who live off the efforts of others health care without affecting the entire healthcare industry.
