Experts: Healthcare.gov still dangerously easy to hack

Salon, January 20, 2014
Despite highly touted improvements to Healthcare.gov's functionality, the site many Americans are using to sign up health coverage under the Affordable Care Act still has crucial cybersecurity weaknesses, experts testified on Capitol Hill Thursday. Witnesses said that nothing has changed since security failings were first brought to light shortly after the website's glitch-plagued launch back in October. "Healthcare.gov is not secure today," said David Kennedy, head of the computer security firm TrustedSec LLC, one of a several security experts to testify before the House Science, Space and Technology Committee on Thursday.
