Healthcare.gov - 04/09/2014

Reportedly, Healthcare.gov has suffered a data breach to one of their test systems by hackers. Currently the Obama administration is communicating that no personal information was compromised, but authorities are investigating.According to the administration, "“our review indicates that the server did not contain consumer personal information, data was not transmitted outside the agency and the website was not specifically targeted,” said Aaron Albright, a spokesman at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs the website. “We have taken measures to further strengthen security.”""Mr. Albright said the hacking was made possible by several security weaknesses. The test server should not have been connected to the Internet, he said, and it came from the manufacturer with a default password that had not been changed.In addition, he said, the server was not subject to regular security scans as it should have been".More Information: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/05/us/hackers-breach-security-of-healthca...
