Could right wing hackers be fuckin with the ACA web site(s)?

I don't know. I'm very tech illiterate. It just seems that, anymore, it happens more and more. Maybe this issue has already been discussed. If so, I missed it.

2. Denial of service attacks perhaps but the real hackers are waiting until the site actually works

before doing some 'real hacking'...

Stay tuned for revelations of great data breaches in the coming year.

8. That's what they thought was happening in New York

 

But they found out it was just very heavy traffic.

4. Yes...it is called

Operation Chaos. I heard this last Thursday-Friday on am radio...Limbaugh Show. A caller announced he was ready to act and follow the TP plan to jam the healthcare.gov website. Limbaugh acknowledged and skirted around endorsement of such behavior. The caller was apparently looking for validation...I'd say he got it from Rush. Informally and between the lines kind of endorsement was my perception.

Rush sounded orgasmic by the Operation Chaos plan by his ditto heads/

I didn't have my Sirius radio so I briefly listened to the enemy....say 15 minutes. This is what they talked about.

Here is a link if you can stand it.....http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2013/10/24/no_need_for_operation_chaos_ii

5. It seems not to be the problem

Before the web site was even up for the public, in late September they tried to test it, and it crashed with a few hundred users.

They knew it was not working before it went live. Many of the tips and tricks suggested on this forum have been due to programming errors.

7. These people voted I don't even know how many times to repeal it, then they

shut down the government and were willing to bring us to economic oblivion to stop it, so let's just say I have a hard time believing that they would just leave the site alone.

9. I say unlikely

The companies who developed it would love to be to blame it on an attack. But they generally have been admitting it just wasn't ready for the traffic.

10. I'm on day 28 now, and I started an account in August, but that account totally disappeared as

of this morning. So I created a new account today. Fortunately, I applied over the phone two weeks ago, and my application went through, and supposedly I will be getting information on my eligibility in the mail any day now, and they told me to call back every day until I get it.

But I'm not worried...

"The check is in the mail!"

Could RW hackers be hacking the ACA? LOL...of course...

they built the system!
