Morgan Wright, CEO of Crowd Sourced Investigations, told lawmakers that Healthcare.gov had more than 500 million lines of code — more than 20 times as much as Facebook (FB) and nearly 10 times as much as Microsoft (MSFT) Windows 8 — and that this complexity made it ripe for hackers. Wright also warned that there was no “clearly defined and qualified security lead” at the site, which he said was “inconsistent with accepted practices. TrustedSec CEO David Kennedy added that “basic security was not built into the Healthcare.gov website,” and no formal testing was done. As a result, he said, the site faced a “critical risk for unauthorized access.”
500 million lines of code. Amazing. Of course you don’t have to be a code breaker to identify the con job the country was sold.
