The Web portal used by millions to purchase health insurance under the Affordable Care Act logged 316 cyber-security incidents during an 18-month period, a government report revealed on Wednesday.
None of the 316 attempts compromised sensitive information, such as the personal data of those shopping for health plans on the site, according to the report. Most of the incidents involved electronic probing of the site’s systems by potential attackers looking for weaknesses. But the watchdog did find a number of flaws in how the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) — which administers Healthcare.gov — protects a key data hub.
