Healthcare enrollees that used the federal website Healthcare.gov to purchase health insurance are being advised that they will need to change their password to guard themselves against the Heartbleed bug. Upon entering the site and clicking on this link:https://www.healthcare.gov/heartbleed, the following message is displayed: “Recently, you may have heard about a new internet security weakness, known as Heartbleed, which is impacting some websites. HealthCare.gov uses many layers of protections to secure your information. While there’s no indication that any personal information has ever been at risk, we have taken steps to address Heartbleed issues and reset consumers’ passwords out of an abundance of caution. This means the next time you visit the website, you’ll need to create a new password. We strongly recommend you create a unique password – not one that you’ve already used on other websites.” So far, Minnesota’s healthcare exchange Mnsure.org has not communicated a similar message to its enrollees.
