this aint good neither…
Health care site flagged in Heartbleed review – (AP) — People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama’s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government’s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw.
I’m not sure what information would be available on the website. Medical information is not. Is financial information, like income? Otherwise it would just be the standard private ID information that is susceptible to hacking on, say, bank websites, insurance company web sites (which might also include medical-treatment information), credit card and other consumer-loan companies (including car-purchase loans or car-lease agreements), Amazon, and even large employers–except that it would disclose what healthcare plan you chose, and that you bought it online through healthcare.com.
i dont have any idea if there’s any info out there that would pose a security threat, either, Beverly…
just pointing the vulnerability out as bad from a PR / talking points standpoint…in fact, i thought thats what the post was about when first reading your headline…
No, the title was intended as a comment on the patent absurdity of these people’s last-gasp effort to win the November elections on Obamacare.
I do think that people are tuning it out now because all the bad stuff they’ve been saying for so many months is being, finally, reported in the news as outright wrong.
Even on the heartbleed thing, everyone knows what the situation is–that is applies to huge numbers of private and public websites, including major email providers. And people who have healthcare.com accounts know that their medical info isn’t on it.
So the wingnut hysteria stuff is having less and less effect. Two polls released last week on the Mich. senate race have the Dem candidate, Rep. Gary Peters, up by 6-10 points over the Repub. Terri Lynn Land. And AFP inundated the airwaves with ads featuring Julie Boonstra and some other woman who is unhappy about her family having to give up some not-very-good plan. And there are more than six months to go.
More spaghetti thrown against the wall.
