Cybersecurity Experts: Healthcare.gov Still InSecure – Worse Now Than 3 Months Ago (Video)

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.

Brett Baier reported on the cyber security problems on Special report, tonight.

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

Krauthammer: The Only People Who have Been Held Accountable For Benghazi Are 15 Libyans Who Are Now Dead (Video)

The Senate Intelligence Committee finally released a report Wednesday faulting both the State Department and the intelligence community for not preventing attacks on two outposts in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, in 2012.

The bipartisan report laid out more than a dozen findings regarding the assaults on a diplomatic compound and a CIA annex in the city. It said the State Department failed to increase security at its mission despite warnings, and blamed intelligence agencies for not sharing information about the existence of the CIA outpost with the U.S. military.

The committee determined that the U.S. military command in Africa didn’t know about the CIA annex and that the Pentagon didn’t have the resources in place to defend the State Department compound in an emergency.

“The attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya — to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets — and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. Mission,” the panel said in a statement.

Today, on Special Report, the panel discussed the report, and reactions to it on Capitol Hill. Even though Hillary Clinton’s name wasn’t mentioned in the Senate report, the panel agreed that Benghazi is going to be a problem for Hillary in the 2016 race. As Charles Krauthammer pointed out – no one was held accountable in the report, other than buildings and entities like the entire State Dept., the military, the CIA. “No individuals – no humans were held responsible on either side of the attack.”

Krauthammer then brought up the chilling fact that “15 people in Libya who cooperated with us – are now dead. They’ve been held accountable.”

That bit of information comes courtesy of the House Intelligence Committee report of previously classified information by the House Armed Services Committee.

Via CNN:

According to the documents, senior military officials told the panel there were no discussions related to any specific threat in Libya despite general warnings about the possibility of terror attacks around the anniversary of 9/11. As a result, additional military assets were not deployed to the area.

On the investigation, the FBI was quoted in the report as saying the 15 deaths have severely hampered its probe.

“The FBI’s investigation into the individuals responsible for the Benghazi attacks has been hampered by inadequate cooperation and a lack of capacity by foreign governments to hold these perpetrators accountable, making the pursuit of justice for the attacks slow and insufficient,” the report said.
