Hackers evidently broke into a server for the Obamacare HealthCare.Gov site in July, planting a malicious piece of software and hoping to launch a Dynamic Denial of Service (DDS) attack. Officials at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) say no personal data were compromised.
“Our review indicates that the server did not contain consumer personal information; data [were] not transmitted outside the agency, and the website was not specifically targeted,” HHS said, adding, “We have taken measures to further strengthen security”
The hack job was discovered on Aug. 25, according to the Wall Street Journal.
