But don’t worry, the ObamaCare system and all your health and personal information will always be perfectly safe.
A portion of the website of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) was apparently hacked as long as two months ago. SAMHSA is an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS also runs the new Obamacare insurance marketplace, Healthcare.gov.
Dozens of pages hawking retail merchandise have been uploaded to the SAMHSA site, ranging from NFL jerseys to Ugg shoes to Armani fragrances.
Clicking on the pages in some cases takes users directly to an external website; other times, certain functions seem to operate within the samhsa.gov site. Of the websites investigated, two domains are registered in the United States and one in China.
Those dang Chinese! If there’s a scam to be had or hacking to be done, they gotta be in on it. We’re a laughing stock and nobody respects us. OBummer’s on the golf course, or reading off TOTUS to some kindergarten class somewhere.
My goodness, who do they have creating the securing programs for these websites with the unlimited budget of the US govt? I think we’d be better off with a couple of American born and bred 16/17 year old hackers to build the security program at this point. Not feeling too safe at the moment, and yet another reason to stay away from the “Marketplace”.
Don’t worry, Tammy. These are all small glitches — understandable when a system of this magnitude is being implemented. Even more, this example highlights the success of the ACA with the general public!
The bovine scat from the gubmint just keeps flowing further and further into the hinterlands.
