The Obamacare website (healthcare.gov) is still accessible but many should be worried after the latest breach.
The numbers being reported are 75,000 individual records were breached but how many of you think it’s worse than that?
Along with its other faults, Obamacare was a showcase for the mass incompetence of the software industry. Software disasters in every government department, every private company and every quasi-governmental institution associated with it. I’m surprised more people haven’t raked the industry over the coals because of this.

Information from 75,000 people who use the federal government’s Obamacare website was hacked earlier this week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reported Friday.
Staff at the agency, known as CMS, said in a statement that they noticed “anomalous activity” in a part of the healthcare.gov site that allows agents and brokers to connect people with health insurance. The agency did not say who was responsible for the hack, but said it had followed protocol by notifying federal law enforcement officials.
The number of people affected represents a small fraction of the roughly 9 million people who enroll in the system, but CMS called the breach “unacceptable.”
“Our number one priority is the safety and security of the Americans we serve,” CMS Administrator Seema Verma said in a statement. “We will continue to work around the clock to help those potentially impacted and ensure the protection of consumer information.”
Oh, now I glad I didn’t give them any on my information. Oh wait, I was already glad about that. Looks like the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services needs a new IT and computer security management and staff. Maybe the old staff can clean CMMS toilets.
