Healthcare.gov may be the single biggest magnet for identity thieves in world history

Doug Ross lays the smackdown.

It appears that individual user accounts and names are indexed via Google and can expose profile information of individuals that sign up on data.healthcare.gov.

Well, isn’t that special!

…The website cost an estimated $624 million and consists of over 500 million lines of code. With the number of lines of code, this is one of the most complex applications ever written in the history of applications. To put this in comparison, the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system, which is the latest, has an estimated 50 to 80 million lines of code and has over 25 years of development and maturity. It should be noted that with 80 million lines of code, the Windows operating system has had a significant amount of “exploits” that have hit their product line since it’s early existence…

Microsoft has one of the largest and most sophisticated security development, protection, and remediation processes today. This process has taken years to mature and places security at the forefront. With a website that is over 6 times more complex than the Microsoft operating system and developed in an extremely short period of time, there is and was no foreseeable way to build security into the website…

…there are clear indicators that even basic security was not built into the healthcare.gov website. TrustedSec is confident based on the exposures identified that the website has critical risks associated with it and security concerns should be remediated immediately…

It’s a hacker’s wet dream. And of course, Obama doesn’t care.

One of the more alarming trends is that the actual security testing of the website was deferred due to project delays. The website was launched without formal testing and with known risks around the security of the applications. Even further, there was little to no security built into the website or through the development.

They left it wide open on purpose.

So when you sign up for Obamacare, your troubles are just beginning.

And I should note, if an insurance company was so cavalier with your personal data, the regulators would come down on them like a ton of bricks. Proving once again, Barack Obama puts himself above the law.

NJ proposes license, registration, cell phone law for traffic stops

Because Big Brother isn’t snooping on us enough already, let’s give every flatfoot in Jersey the right to seize your cell phone without a warrant!

License, registration and cell phone, please.

Police officers across New Jersey could be saying that to motorists at the scenes of car crashes if new legislation introduced in the state Senate becomes law.

The measure would allow cops — without a warrant — to thumb through a cell phone to determine if a driver was talking or texting when an accident occurred. It requires officers to have “reasonable grounds” to believe the law was broken.

Has anyone seen the Fourth Amendment lately?

And why can’t they just call up their buddies in the NSA and get all the cell phone records they want?

Barack Obama is listening to your phone calls

OK, maybe not Barack Obama directly. But his minions at the NSA are snooping on you. And me.

The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America’s largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.

The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.

The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk – regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.

The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Fisa) granted the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited authority to obtain the data.

Peachy, right? Because Obama would never abuse the public trust.
