Worker for Minnesota ObamaCare 'exchange' releases private info in security breach

An employee at MNsure, Minnesota's new online health insurance exchange, accidentally distributed confidential information about more than 2,400 insurance agents. 

MNsure officials acknowledged mishandling private information. They said the employee sent an e-mail to the office of an Apple Valley insurance broker on Thursday afternoon that contained Social Security numbers, names, business addresses and other identifying information. 

The employee realized her mistake and immediately called the broker, Jim Koester. Then a MNsure security manager called to walk Koester and his assistant through the process of deleting the file from their computer hard drives. Koester told the Star Tribune he willingly complied but was unnerved by what happened. 

"The more I thought about it, the more troubled I was," he said. "What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It's scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?"

It most certainly will not be safe... if the TSA is any example of what minority hiring can do wait until ACORN is running all the 'Pilot' centers for Obama Care... nightmare, we hope that is all it becomes.  Total disaster most likely...

The answer to that question is they can't be sure.  Mistakes happen all the time, sometimes deliberately.

Please note:

They do not say who the third-world representative was who made the error.

They do not say: a.) If this is the only time this imployee has done this, or b.) Was or wasn't caught, or c.) what punishment she received.

There is an old saying that goes any question to which you already know the answer in NOT a question.  So to the statement ""What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It's scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?"  We already know the answer to this questing, but the real question is will we allow it to continue...

Again, it really is no question when we already know the answer... will it continue?  Yes and it will only get worse. 

Wait until Acorn and its affiliates become the primary contractor for 'Navigator' centers, the primary facilitators for those looking to navigate thru the mired details needed to access Obama Care... No one may get any care, after these 'navigators' end up scattering your paper work half way around the world. 


Laugh my a-- off!!!

It is time to get rid of social security numbers etc. The government just collects personal information to mis-use and control the people.

What a mess... you all know this stuff will eventually lead to mandatory ID cards, then to micro chips under the skin or tattoos required to buy or sell.

The beauracracy of obummercare in action.   Makes me feel safe.   LOL


God help us !

I have come to the conclusion there is no way to fix our broken government.  If you can't fix something, you discard it; throw it out; put it in the trash.

Everything about Obama is scary!

Wait until some idiots get into this like the Obama administration it also will. be a nightmare

It hasn't even started yet,,,and it has already had a security leak,,,,

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
