    Government memo warns of security risk when using the ACA site

    "An internal government memo obtained by CNN and written just days before the start of open enrollment for Obamacare warned of a "high" security risk because of a lack of testing of the HealthCare.gov website." Great...

    "high" security risk? Being on the internet anywhere is, and when you enter a website door, it over. i

    Yep. They went live knowing the risks.

    This is typical, yes? The engineers always notify the bosses about the risks. Always.

    They did not do a full system security check which means they may have problems protecting personal information from hackers

    Hackers, yeah... people dressed as telephone repairmen... even those ObamaCare recruiters. (That latter one is the biggest problem, as near as I can tell - done this way it doesn't even require a computer).

    An illegal immigrant in New York is serving as an Obamacare navigator, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, a non-profit limited immigration group.

    House Oversight Committee recently issued a report highlighting the personal security risks involved with handing over sensitive consumer information to such workers — who are not required to undergo background checks.

    “[T]he main concern for consumers is the heightened risk of identity theft and financial loss from a poorly managed outreach campaign,” the Oversight Committee report read. “Navigators and Assisters will come into contact with a plethora of personally identifiable information (PII), including an applicant’s Social Security number, date of birth and income, as well as the PII of everyone in an applicant’s household.”
