Three and a half months after its launch the ObamaCrash website remains riddled with security vulnerablities two cybersecurity experts told lawmakers Thursday.
In testimony before the the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, Thursday, David Kennedy, CEO of TrustedSEC, a cybersecurity consulting firm , said security has gotten worse in the past two months and warned Americans to stay way from healthcare.gov..
”The website is not getting any better,” he said. “TrustedSec’s opinion still holds strong that the website fails to meet even basic security practices for protecting sensitive information of individuals and does not provide adequate levels of
protection for the website itself.”
The Washington Free Beacon Reported:
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has said there have been no successful hack attempts on Healthcare.gov. However, according to Kennedy, the government has no idea whether that is the case.
Smith asked Kennedy to clarify why “the government doesn’t even know whether it’s been hacked or not.”
“If you look at the Healthcare.gov infrastructure, it was built independently of HHS, even the security operations centerpiece,” Kennedy said. “The security operations center as of Nov. 17 had not been built or implemented, which means that they didn’t have the security monitoring or detection capabilities to detect the attacks that are being mentioned here today.”
“So to reemphasize, they don’t know,” he said.
“That’s why they can say there haven’t been any,” Smith said. “They’re not in a position to know one way or the other.”
“That’s correct,” Kennedy said.

David Kennedy and Senator Ted Cruz appeared on On The Record with Greta Van Susteren to talk about the ObamaCare rolling trainwreck.
