Medicare and Medicaid centers made an announcement late in the evening before the weekend, writes Voice of America, adding that bad news is often published before the weekend.

Officials said the hacked system was shut down, and technicians are working on restoring it before 1 registration begins in November in accordance with the Law on Accessible Assistance.

About 10 million people use the HealthCare.gov system in accordance with the law on the health care of former President Barack Obama.

Consumers applying for subsidized insurance must provide extensive personal information, including social security numbers, income and citizenship or legal immigration status.

The system that was hacked is used by insurance agents and brokers to directly register customers. All other registration systems work.

CMS spokesman Jonathan Monroe said "nothing happened" to HealthCare.gov, which is used by the general public. “The problems concern agents and brokers, the data for which is not available to the general public,” he explained.

Federal law enforcement agencies have been warned, affected customers will be notified and will be provided with credit protection.

Earlier, President Donald Trump promised to cancel Obamacare, but failed.
