True words man smile.gif Aside from musical activity related stuff, I don't think that I post anything else... maybe a quote that could inspire people or some announcement that can help a friend.. Stuff like that. But I HATE lunch posts or telling people what I am doing...

Here is the article pasted from the link smile.gif I feat we are getting in to political back and forth though and I'd like to keep it more about guitar so this will be my last post in this in this thread. Just to be clear, my personal feelings on the healthcare web site are not very positive. My feelings on obamamcare in general though are quite positive. It's shameful that a country like the USA has had to wait this long to provide it's citizens with affordable health care. But finally, we have it. Now if we could only improve our education system to be as good as say, Sweden, Finland, Norway, etc. We would really be moving smile.gif But that would require "standards" which may never happen.

<h1 class="subheadlinemain"> Computer Security Expert Claims he Hacked the ObamaCare Website in 4 Minutes </h1>
January 21, 2014

The hits just keep on coming for ObamaCare. It was less than two weeks ago that I highlighted the potential premium rate death spiral that ObamaCare faces due to the fact that only old and sick people are signing up for the program. Now it seems there are further security related concerns plaguing the site, as cyber-security expert David Kennedy recently claimed that “gaining access to 70,000 personal records of Obamacare enrollees via HealthCare.gov took about 4 minutes.”

It’s actually hard to be this incompetent if you tried. More from the Washington Times:

The man who appeared before Congress last week to explain the security pitfalls of HealthCare.gov took to Fox News on Sunday to explain just how easy it was to penetrate the website.

Hacking expert David Kennedy told Fox’s Chris Wallace that gaining access to 70,000 personal records of Obamacare enrollees via HealthCare.gov took about 4 minutes and required nothing more than a standard browser, the Daily Caller reported.

“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 Beaconreported.

WELL SAID!!!! I made a pledge to myself this year to try to post stuff that's worth posting. It's tempting to post everything sometimes for some folks. But it just adds to the "noise" of life and it's a bad thing IMHO. As a guide, any activity you do that people can assume you are doing (E.g. having lunch at lunch time, off to the gym/out to eat/etc.) is really not "news" and not really worth posting IMHO.
