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
"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.
