Denial-of-service Tool Targeting Healthcare.gov Site Discovered

Denial-of-service tool targeting Healthcare.gov site discovered | Ars Technica:

Researchers have uncovered software available on the Internet designed to overload the struggling Healthcare.gov website with more traffic than it can handle.

“ObamaCare is an affront to the Constitutional rights of the people,” a screenshot from the tool, which was acquired by researchers at Arbor Networks, declares. “We HAVE the right to CIVIL disobedience!”

As much as I empathize with any diligent protest movement, there’s no law that has been constitutionally tested than the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It has gone through all three check and balances outlined by the Constitution. It was passed by the Congress, signed by the President, and affirmed by the Supreme Court.

Interfering it is a denial of the people’s Constitutional rights.
