McAfee Antivirus Founder On ObamaCare Exchanges: ‘What Idiot Put This System Out There?’
Computer programmer extraordinaire and founder of McAfee, Inc. John McAfee called the online component of ObamaCare “is a hacker’s wet dream” that will cause “the loss of income for the millions of Americans.”
Tell us how you really feel, John. On Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” on Wednesday, McAfee said the way the system is set up makes it possible for fake websites be set up to fool people into thinking they’re signing up for ObamaCare:
“It’s seriously bad. Somebody made a grave error, not in designing the program but in simply implementing the web aspect of it. I mean, for example, anybody can put up a web page and claim to be a broker for this system. There is no central place where I can go and say, ‘OK, here are all the legitimate brokers, the examiners for all of the states and pick and choose one.’”
Hey, listen, McAfee may seem like a whacked out dude to some, but he does know his stuff about computer security.
“Any hacker can put a website up, make it look extremely competitive, and because of the nature of the system — and this is healthcare, after all — they can ask you the most intimate questions, and you’re freely going to answer them: What’s my Social Security number? My birth date? What are my health issues?”
