Expert: Healthcare.gov Security Risks Even Worse After 'Fix'
Health and Human Services (HHS) released a progress report on Sunday following its self-imposed Nov. 30 deadline to repair the website, saying that the "team has knocked more than 400 bug fixes and software improvements off the punch list."
The administration said that the "site capacity is stable at its intended level," though the site continued to crash on Monday. The eight-page report made no mention of the website's numerous security flaws, which experts say put Americans' personal information at risk.
"It doesn't appear that any security fixes were done at all," David Kennedy, CEO of the online security firm TrustedSec, told the Washington Free Beacon.
Kennedy said fundamental safeguards missing from Healthcare.gov that were identified by his company more than a month ago have yet to be put in place.
"There are a number of security concerns already with the website, and that's without even actually hacking the site, that's just a purely passive analysis of [it]," he said. "We found a number of critical exposures that were around sensitive information, the ability to hack into the site, things like that. We reported those issues and none of those appear to have been addressed at all."
After warning Americans when testifying before Congress on Nov. 19 to stay away from Healthcare.gov, Kennedy now says the situation is even worse.
