The federal health insurance marketplace at Healthcare.gov still has major security issues according to some experts, including a flaw that allows user records to show up in Google results. At least 70,000 records with personal identifying information including first and last names, addresses, and user names are accessible by using an advanced Google search and then tweaking the resulting URLs, according to David Kennedy, founder of the security firm TrustedSec. Kennedy and other security experts believe that new features are also introducing new problems as changes are made to the site. Unfortunately, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) the Health Department agency responsible for Healthcare.govs development, hasnt responded to Kennedys disclosures.
