Anyone still wondering how we are going to lose our country? Not by an army, but simply by installing a corrupt election process that turns us into a Banana Republic.
Recall the post earlier Foreign Company owns U.S. election software?
“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama. Drudge reports that the best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.
Now we move on to the “test”
After Halderman’s attack, election officials said they would no longer allow ballots to be returned over the Internet as planned in November. Instead, officials plan to allow overseas voters to download their ballots from the Internet and return them by fax, mail or e-mail, which will not be secret. Halderman said that system seemed to be less vulnerable.
A University of Michigan professor who with his students hacked a prototype D.C. voting website and had it play the school’s fight song said today it will be decades, if ever, before voting can be performed safely over the Internet.
J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor, has been participating in a test of Washington’s new “Digital Vote By Mail” system, which was supposed to allow some 900 D.C. overseas voters submit ballots over the Internet.
During the test, which began last week, not only was Halderman’s group able to get the site to play the fight song, they also changed cast votes to “evil science fiction robots” and gained access to video cameras monitoring a board of elections data center.
Halderman’s hack prompted election officials to take down the system for several days, but it went back up on Tuesday. Halderman said that on Thursday his group changed the password to part of the system to “InternetVotingIsDangerous!” and locked officials out. The test of the system was supposed to end today.
