WASHINGTON (CBS NEWS/AP) – According to a report being released Tuesday, a critical vulnerability was found when the government’s own watchdogs tried to hack into HealthCare.gov earlier this year.

The report, conducted by the Health and Human Services Department inspector general who focuses on health care fraud, is a mixed review for the federal website that serves as the portal to taxpayer-subsidized health plans for Americans.

CBS News reported that a weakness was found by the “white hat” or ethical hackers from the inspector general’s office. However, when they tried to exploit it like a malicious hacker would, they were blocked by the system’s defenses.

The public version of the report was condensed and a heavily edited summary of detailed findings were delivered to the Obama administration.

To bolster security on the site, more work needs to be done, the report concluded. The congressional Government Accountability Office released similar conclusions after its own review last week.

This is the second independent security assessment in as many weeks to find problems.
