Hackers managed to breach a server which is part of HealthCare.gov and managed to upload a malicious software.

The server in question is a test server that was not meant to be connected to the Internet, it reportedly doesn't contain consumer personal information. 

The incident was originally reported by the Wall Street Journal.  The attackers broke into the server in july but the security breach was only detected on August 25 during routine review of security logs.

Department of Health and Human Services said the website was not specifically targeted.  The malware used in this attack was likely to perform denial of service attacks on the other websites.

The malware has been removed from the server.
