4 cyber security experts concur: Obamacare website dangerous for Americans to use!

Healthcare.gov ‘may already have been compromised,’ security expert says
Rubin called for a security review of the site, but stopped short of calling for a complete tear down and rebuild of the healthcare.gov site. Others were less cautious.

“You can bolt a metal door on to make a house better, but if the foundation is bad. . .” Kennedy said.

Hearing: Security Flaws in Obamacare Website Endanger Americans
Kennedy demonstrated an attack in the hearing room, showing how on Finder.Healthcare.gov a hacker could breach into a computer, monitor its webcam, and steal passwords.

Hackers from Russia or China could “absolutely” breach the online marketplace, he said.

The problems could only get worse since the president’s team is trying to fix the website while it is still up and running.

Morgan Wright, a cyber terrorism expert and CEO of Crowd Sourced Investigations, LLC., said attempting to fix one line of code could open up a “Pandora’s box.”

“You create an unintended series of cascading events you have no control over because you don’t have a grasp of what the code is actually doing,” he said. “You think you’ve changed one thing, by doing that you’ve opened up a Pandora’s box of vulnerabilities on the other side.”

Kennedy said he has never seen anything like it.
