Surprise: Officials confirm security breach on Vermont’s Obamacare exchange « The Greenroom: "Vermont’s Obamacare chief has assured citizens that this error was isolated and has been “responded to appropriately.” So we’re all good. Thus far, news stories on Obamacare data security breaches have involved honest citizens and IT specialists probing for weaknesses. Might there be other characters out there exploiting unknown vulnerabilities for more nefarious purposes? Not to worry; Kathleen Sebelius “feels like” the websites are secure, even as security experts urge the administration to take Healthcare.gov off-line until safeguards are enhanced. And why wouldn’t people trust her casual assessment over the urgent warnings of people whose expertise lies in the realm of online security? Suck it up and carry on, folks. It’s not like the navigators handling your private data might be convicted felons, or anything."
