According to a cyber security expert, security for the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov, is "much worse off" now than before:

"It's not just myself that's saying this website is insecure, it's also seven independent security researchers that also looked at all the research that I had done and came to the exact same conclusion," said the security expert this morning on Fox News Sunday. "And these are folks that work really well in the industry. They're highly respected, have an extensive experience of working for the government. And, you know, if you read the testimony and you read what she had actually said, she said that it's done end to end security testing--they don't say what type of testing that is. It could have been an audit that just looks at paperwork. It could have been, you know, really rudimentary testing that looks for basic things.

"But what's pretty evident right now is that the site itself is not secure. It's much worse off."
