The “Healthcare.gov Hack” That Wasn’t
Posted by Phoenix Woman on September 6, 2014
The conservative lie funnel has been going berserk lately over the alleged hacking of healthcare.gov. Per “respectable” conservative site Politico:
The HealthCare.gov insurance portal succumbed to a cyberattack this summer, the government said Thursday, prompting an eruption of GOP finger-pointing and demands for hearings into the administration’s security policies for the site, where millions of Americas have registered to purchase insurance.
Was healthcare.gov hacked? Not really. A test server was uploaded with “denial of service” malware – a practice “so common that it’s attempted 28 different times every hour.” The healthcare.gov site itself was unharmed.
