Botnet malware discovered on Healthcare.gov server

Quote:
Thanks to a poor initial launch followed a few months later by the Heartbleed scare, Healthcare.gov has had its share of security problems. Now, we can add one more security snafu to the list. In early July, a hacker was able to infiltrate a server connected to Healthcare.gov, deposit malware on it, and remain undetected for about a month and a half.

The good news is no personal information was compromised and it appears the malware was never actually used, according to CNN. The compromised server was a test machine that site developers use to try out code before pushing it live on the servers hosting the actual site. The server did not contain any personally sensitive information such as names or Social Security numbers.

That's what people are hoping/ saying but eventually everyone will be on it because there will be no incentive for employers to provide health insurance anymore

Then I will not have health insurance.

I am not going to pay $300 a month for something I do not even use. I would rather pay the fine, its cheaper then paying the cost of health care.

I go to the doctor maybe once a year.


Sigh. Canada is looking so good now...

Canada already has socialized medicine has for many years as far as I've read
At this point the fine is the less of the two evils but that's I believe to rocket in two years but the amount revolves around income first couple at 2-5% much cheaper :)

Lol, I never went to a doctor either...had a kidney stone...would have cost me like 30,000 total if I had no insurance. I would never be without medical insurance, it is for the unexpected. A Guy

I am not saying people should not have it, I am saying it should be affordable and not outrageous pricing for something I barely use.

I don't believe there is such an animal as "Affordable healthcare"
If you would pay 300 a month that's a pretty good deal when the average is more than 400
The only affordable policies come from employers and they're on the hit list with all of the now subsidies from the affordable care act,
States will eventually have to pick up the costs of Medicaid expansion so that will undoubtedly turn into another state income tax

Seeing what you guys have to pay for medical treatment frightens the life out of me, if I had to directly pay I'd never get anything fixed and would probably be dead by now.
