Whatever your political affiliation, I'm sure you've heard of the Affordable Healthcare Act and the website Healthcare.gov.

The (in)famous Obamacare Healthcare.gov website first debuted in October 2013 but the start up problems were so bad that by some estimates, only 1% of interested people were able to enroll to the site in the first week of its operations. If that's not a rocky start, I don't know what is.

And it seems like this website can't catch a break. Not only was it compromised from the start, but initial probes and tests against the site revealed that a Google search was the only thing needed to obtain 70,000 medical records.

Ouch. And if that wasn't enough, now one organization has vowed to attack Healthcare.gov every week for the foreseeable future. Who in the world would do this sort of thing?
