Computer hacking expert David Kennedy told FoxNews on Sunday that he could gain access to private healthcare data from 70,000 personal records within 4 minutes using nothing but a web browser. He said given more time that number would be much higher, hundreds of thousands.
“And 70,000 was just one of the numbers that I was able to go up to and I stopped after that,” he said. “You know, I’m sure it’s hundreds of thousands, if not more, and it was done within about a 4 minute timeframe. So, it’s just wide open.”
“You can literally just open up your browser, go to this, and extract all this information without actually having to hack the website itself,” he said.
Mr. Kennedy testified before Congress Thursday that HealthCare.gov was “100 percent” insecure, Washington Free Beacon reported.
“What we learned was that they had rushed through what we call the software development life cycle where they actually build the application.”
