Krauthammer’s Take: Security Flaws ‘a Disaster Waiting to Happen’

Cyber security expert David Kennedy testified before the House Science, Space, and Technology committee today, telling lawmakers that 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.
