Washington (CNN)-- Hackers have attempted more than a dozen cyber attacks against the Obamacare website, according to a top Homeland Security Department official.

The attacks, which are under investigation, failed, said the official.

Authorities also are investigating a separate report of a tool designed to put heavy strain on HealthCare.gov through a so-called distributed denial of service. It does not appear to have been activated.

"We received about 16 reports from HHS that are under investigation and one open source report about a denial of service," according to Acting Assistant Homeland Security Secretary Roberta Stempfley of the Office of Cybersecurity and Communications.

Stempfley testified at a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee that the attempts were made between November 6 and November 8, but none were successful.

Stempfley testified at a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee that the attempts were made between November 6 and November 8, but none were successful.

The DDOS program, called "Destroy Obama Care," was recently spotted on a "torrent" file sharing web page, and first reported last week on a blog by Arbor Networks, which said it found no evidence the program had actually been launched to attack the troubled federal portal for consumers to shop for health coverage.

"We have not monitored any attacks. We have not seen any sizable, or anything to believe that these problems are related to DDOS," said Dan Holden director of security research for Arbor Networks, adding "I don't believe that the problems with the site's availability is due to any kind of DDOS attack."

In a separate hearing, a top Health and Human Services official, Chief Information Officer Frank Baitman, said his department had engaged an "ethical hacker" on staff to test the defenses of the health care site.

The hacker discovered between seven and 10 items related to attempted security breaches which were disclosed in a report.

Baitman said he would not describe these items as serious and said the majority had been resolved.

The use of hackers employed to test on line site security is common, Holden said.

SEN. DEBBIE STABENOW (D-Mich.):“As someone who has a large number of large employers in my state, one of the things I appreciate about the chairman's mark is — is the grandfathering provisions, the fact that the people in my state, 60 percent of whom have insurance, are going to be able to keep it. And Mr. Chairman, I appreciate that. That's a strong commitment. It's clear in the bill … I appreciate the strong commitment on your part and the president to make sure that if you have your insurance you can keep it. That's the bottom line for me.”(U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Bill Mark-Up, 9/24/09)

As usual you are the ones without a clue, running around with BS against sound judgement based on science & facts.
You know Big Al (one of your favourite people) warned about superstorms and it seems we have had a few of them the past few years.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's health care law risks coming unglued because of his administration's bungles and his own inflated promises.

But even after Obama gets the enrollment website working, count on new controversies. On the horizon is the law's potential impact on job-based insurance. Its mandate that larger employers offer coverage will take effect in 2015.

"There's been nothing normal about this law from the start," said Larry Levitt, an insurance expert with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.

Younger, healthier customers probably don't see much reason to spend their time tangling with the website. To hold down costs, the law aims for a mix that includes a hefty proportion of younger enrollees whose medical expenses are low.

http://news.msn.com/us/obama-struggles-to-sav...

The number of people losing their employer-covered health insurance by 2015 hasn't hit the fan yet.
