HealthCare.gov still under fear of attack
January 17 , 2014
Hackers still have access to HealthCare.gov despite the fact that the pleas to fix these vulnerabilities began in October.
Security experts told Reuters that personal information of users could be hacked and the site's infrastructure is under the danger of being damaged as well. A consultant said these issues "are alarming."
"The site is fundamentally flawed in ways that make it dangerous to people who use it," another one said.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, on the other hand, noted that there "have been no successful security attacks" and that "security testing is conducted on an ongoing basis." However, an expert who tried to sign up himself said he tried to contact the site about 15 times to report vulnerabilities but no body wanted "a conversation about how to fix it."
