ObamaCare Site Ripe for Hackers, Computer Safety Expert Warns

Can you lose your life savings by signing up for ObamaCare?

Computer hackers can easily steal your identity through the ObamaCare site, John McAfee, computer programmer and founder of the McAfee computer software security company, told Gretchen Carlson Friday.

McAfee explained that there are no safeguards to prevent anyone from developing a website and pretending to be an agent or an examiner with the ability to extract enough personal details that would enable him or her to empty an entire bank account.

“This is going to happen and it’s going to happen very soon,” McAfee warned.

“The hacker aspect is only one of the problems,” McAfee said. “Most people can’t even log onto the system because it’s so complex and error-ridden.”

McAfee explained that he architecture of the system is “outrageous,” adding that it wasn’t designed properly to support the volume of ObamaCare customers.
