Hackers At DEF CON In Las Vegas Took 90 Minutes To Hack A Voting Machine

A team of hackers at DEF CON in Las Vegas were able to successfully infiltrate a voting machine in just 90 minutes on Friday, according to The Daily Caller.

The team found fatal flaws and holes in the system just minutes into the attempt.

Check it out:

“Without question, our voting systems are weak and susceptible. Thanks to the contributions of the hacker community today, we’ve uncovered even more about exactly how,” Managing Director of Cambridge Global Capital Jake Braun said about the results.

“The scary thing is we also know that our foreign adversaries — including Russia, North Korea, Iran — possess the capabilities to hack them too, in the process undermining principles of democracy and threatening our national security.”

The least-secure machine was Winvote-brand and was a machine from Virginia.

Machines were also tested from companies Diebold and Sequoia. Most were retrieved on eBay or government auctions.

The Virginia machine took only one minute and 40 seconds to infiltrate.

Hackers were able to obtain remote access, meaning anyone in the world could violate the machine at any time.

  3. I think that everything composed was very reasonable. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I am not saying your content isn’t solid, but what if
    you added a title to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean Hackers At DEF CON In Las Vegas Took 90 Minutes To Hack A Voting Machine
    – SARAH PALIN is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page
    and watch how they create post titles to get people interested.

    You might add a video or a related pic or two
    to grab people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion,
    it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
