In the wake of a Christmas-season punctuated by massive hack attacks, consumers yesterday awoke to find that the new federal health insurance entitlement program “remains fundamentally flawed in ways that make it dangerous to people who use it.” That was the characterization of security expert Kevin Johnson, reviewing for Reuters the findings of “white hat” hackers who exposed gaping vulnerabilities in the federal data cache for ObamaCare.
