Breached Healthcare.gov Test Server Was Still Using Default Password

Category : DataBreach

The Healthcare.gov test server breached earlier this summer was still
using its default password. US-CERT Team Director Ann Barron-DiCamillo
told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that the breach
did not compromise any patient data “due to the segmentation of the
network.” The intruders used the access to harness the server’s
resources to launch attacks against other websites.
