Obamacare and Belarus – no software companies in America can write code?


Considering that America is at the forefront of software development and websites, it was hard to get past the thought that a half a billion dollars had to be given to a Canadian firm to write the Obamacare website. So let us just pass on commenting on that debacle. Now we learn that one of Putin’s satellite states, Belarus, played a hand in writing the software code. Why are there not demonstrations in the streets of America? Are we nothing but sheep? Don’t answer, I already know. The march to the camps continues. This reminds me of an earlier post: Foreign company owns U.S. election software-UPDATE January 19, 2012 — bunkerville. Soros owns a major stake in Scytl. The servers are located in Spain. What could go wrong?

“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama. Drudge reports that the  best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.

In 2009, SCYTL formally registered with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (AEC) as the first Internet voting manufacturer in the U.S. under the EAC Voting System Testing and Certification Program.

Project Vote noted that in 2008, the Florida Department of State commissioned a review of SCYTL’s remote voting software and concluded, in part, that:

  • The system is vulnerable to attack from insiders.
  • In a worst case scenario, the software could lead to (1) voters being unable to cast votes; (2) an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters; and (3) possible disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by individual voters.
  • The system may be subject to attacks that could compromise the integrity of the votes cast.

Now back to the story:

U.S. intelligence agencies last week urged the Obama administration to check its new healthcare network for malicious software after learning that developers linked to the Belarus government helped produce the website, raising fresh concerns that private data posted by millions of Americans will be compromised.

The intelligence agencies notified the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency in charge of the Healthcare.gov network, about their concerns last week. Specifically, officials warned that programmers in Belarus, a former Soviet republic closely allied with Russia, were suspected of inserting malicious code that could be used for cyber attacks, according to U.S. officials familiar with the concerns.

The software links the millions of Americans who signed up for Obamacare to the federal government and more than 300 medical institutions and healthcare providers.

“The U.S. Affordable Care Act software was written in part in Belarus by software developers under state control, and that makes the software a potential target for cyber attacks,” one official said.

    FOX News does just enough conservative-lite stuff to keep its ratings. Keep in mind the Saudis have a 17% + stake in FOX. These phonies answer to more than one master. If this was a truly conservative outlet the bloodletting would include the clueless obnoxious Shepard Smith, the moronic Neil Cavuto and the big daddy of them all the sacrosanct phoney Bill -Obama’s a great guy doing a tough job- O’Reilly. Fortunately talk radio and the blogosphere remain true to themselves.

    So then the fox guarding the henhouse syndrome is alive and well as regards not only our elections but also what is called our “healthcare system”. Obama needs to appoint an oversight czar who can make sure our destruction proceeds as expeditiously as possible. After all there is not much time left before the boy emperor steps down in three years (I’ll believe it when I see it).
