Not only is healthcare.gov at risk, it may already have been compromised, a security expert testified before the Senate.

"Hackers are definitely after it," said David Kennedy, CEO of information security firm TrustedSEC before a House Science, Space, and Technology committee hearing on security concerns surrounding the problematic Healthcare.gov website.

"And if I had to guess, based on what I can see... I would say the website is either hacked already or will be soon."

Kennedy told FoxNews.com he based this on an analysis revealing a large number of SQL injection attacks against the healthcare.gov website, which are indicative of "a large amount" of hacking attempts.
