Hackers tried to attack Healthcare.gov website

Posted: Updated:

Hackers have tried more than a dozen times to take control of the healthcare.gov website.

The good news is none of the cyber attacks have been successful, according to homeland security officials.

An "ethical hacker" has been hired to try to find holes in the system and close them.

Many Americans have expressed fear that their personal information could be accessed if they registered on the website.
