Healthcare.gov, or is Hack-Care.com a better and more appropriate name for Obamacare?


 
According to Natural News, Red State found out, via Alex Hern on Twitter, that the Obamacare website has attempted website attacks in its search box, automatically activating when one types or mistypes the right letters or punctuation. This tells us a few things: there is a lack of polish in the Healthcare.gov website, there are many people who want to break into the website and there isn’t much confidence in the security of the website. All of these things should be troubling to people with data in that system.

As per Red State, sites that store information in databases need to take input from the user (such as a URL, or a search box) and put that into a request to the database. The text from the public has to go into the SQL. That’s a problem, because malicious users who understand SQL could put SQL into their searches, running whatever commands they want on the database.


The message contained in a column that U.S. Rep. Lamar Alexander wrote for Breitbart News is appropriate. While it doesn't carry major international implications, Alexander's appeal for Obama to ditch the glitch-prone failure that characterizes the Obamacare exchange is the domestic equivalent of asking him to restore Americans' freedom:

Many Americans have experienced the ill effects of Obamacare. That's because the President's broken promises are piling up. He promised that if you like your health care plan you can keep it. But for millions of Americans, that's not true.

He said that the law would make health insurance more affordable. But across the country, Americans are seeing their premiums go up, not down. And when launching Healthcare.gov, the Obama administration said that the website was safe, secure and open for business. We now know that isn't true, either.

Alexander and others have pointed out that users of Healthcare.gov must provide a trove of personal data. In fact, the site is "one of the largest collections of personal information ever assembled," Alexander writes. Furthermore, the site links information between seven federal agencies and state agencies, as well a host of government contractors.

The site asks for users to provide personal info like birth dates, Social Security numbers and household incomes "in order to obtain information about potential health coverage," writes Alexander.

US and British intelligence officials say they are concerned about a “doomsday” collection of highly classified, heavily encrypted materials they believe former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden may have stored away. The cache supposedly contains documents with names of US and allied intelligence personnel, seven current and former US officials and other sources told Reuters.

The collection is shielded by elaborate encryption that requires multiple passwords to open, said two of the sources, who all spoke to Reuters anonymously. At least three people – unknown to the sources – possess the passwords, which are only valid for a short period each day, they said.

Officials believe the cache would likely be stored and encrypted apart from the rest of the material that Snowden gave to news outlets. The NSA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment on the collection.
