The Washington Examiner reports, ObamaCare has extremely poor security that makes subscribers vulnerable to identity theft. John McAfee, the eccentric genious behind McAffee Anti-virus software, Obamacare websites have “no safeguards” to protect Americans who enroll in the health insurance exchanges from hackers who will “empty your bank account,” according to internet security pioneer John McAfee, said he could create a fake Obamacare exchange website for “a couple hundred dollars” and expect a big return on the scam.
“I’ll ask you your social security, your date of birth, [so] an hour later I can empty your bank account,” he told Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson. “And this is going to happen, it’s going to happen soon. Nothing in the Obamacare system safeguards against this,” he said. The interview was a follow-up to McAfee’s conversation with Fox’s Neil Cavuto last week. “There is no central place where I can go and say, ‘OK, here are all the legitimate brokers and examiners, for all of the states,’ and pick and choose one,” McAfee told Cavuto.
Erika Johnsen from Hotair.com recently wrote “…”The glitch was discovered last week by Ben Simo, a software tester in Arizona. Simo found that gaining access to people’s accounts was frighteningly simple. You could have:
-guessed an existing user name, and the website would have confirmed it exists.
-claimed you forgot your password, and the site would have reset it.
-viewed the site’s unencrypted source code in any browser to find the password reset code.
-plugged in the user name and reset code, and the website would have displayed a person’s three security questions (your oldest niece’s first name, name of favorite pet, date of wedding anniversary, etc.).
-answered the security questions wrong, and the website would have spit out the account owner’s email address — again, unencrypted. …
“This seems really sloppy,” Simo said. “Either the developers were incompetent and did not know how to do the basic things to protect user information, or the development was so fractured that the individuals building the system didn’t understand how they fit into the bigger picture.”
“[I]nstead, any hacker can put a website up, and make it look extremely competitive, and because of the nature of the system — this is health care, after all — they can ask you the most intimate questions and you’re freely going to answer them.”
