Experts today testified before lawmakers and said that the Obamacare website has been hacked and is a perfect target for hackers.
"Hackers are definitely after it," said David Kennedy, CEO of information security firm TrustedSEC before a House Science, Space, and Technology committee hearing on security concerns surrounding the problematic Healthcare.gov website.

"And if I had to guess, based on what I can see ... I would say the website is either hacked already or will be soon."

Kennedy told FoxNews.com he based this on an analysis revealing a large number of SQL injection attacks against the healthcare.gov website, which are indicative of "a large amount" of hacking attempts.

"Based on the exposures that I identified, and many that I haven't published due to the criticality of exposures -- if a hacker wanted access to the site or sensitive information -- they could get it," he told FoxNews.com.

The experts testified that security wasn't built into Healthcare.gov from the very beginning.
