Cyber security expert David Kennedy testified before the House Science, Space, and Technology committee today, telling lawmakers that Healthcare.gov is still vulnerable and “is not getting any better.”
“This is a huge problem,” Charles Krauthammer said on Special Report. “This system, which is open to everyone — millions apparently have used it — is a gateway to IRS, DHS, other agencies, and if that is not working in terms of security then it’s a disaster waiting to happen.”
According to Kennedy, these insecurities can allow a hacker to complete a profile of someone’s entire online presence. “If there are problems of this magnitude, perhaps it ought to be brought down,” Krauthammer said.
