Hacker’s Dream, Insurance Nightmare

World’s greatest hacker blasts ‘shameful’ Healthcare.gov for its ‘minimal, if any’ security protections | Mail Online

A man who was once the FBI’s most wanted hacker says Healthcare.gov is a cybercriminal’s dream.

Kevin Mitnick has been a legend in the hacking world since his 1990s heydays, but he’s now playing for the good guys and sent a dire message to a congressional security panel on the ObamaCare website on Thursday.

‘It’s shameful the team that built the Healthcare.gov site implemented minimal, if any, security best practices,’ he wrote in a letter submitted to panel chairman Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican.

I keep telling you: ┬áIt’s a tossup which gang of thugs – IRS, NSA, or Russian hackers – you’re giving all your sensitive information to when you sign up at the Obamacare website.

Probably all of them.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
