Voter system hacking

Post by firemedic2000 » Wed Sep 21, 2016 11:34 am

This idiot college professor Halderman and his students are on FOX saying they were able to hack the Washington DC voting system and change votes. Really :---) they make it all sound soooo easyyyy don't they. I wonder why FOX did not point out one piece of really important information to this claim in their interview.

Ready for it......in order to hack the voting system the professor and his students had to have the actual voter machine. You know that machine that you put your voter paper into after you vote and the computer in that one box talleys the vote of just the voter cards put in it.

So in order to hack the voter system this professor and his students would have to have access to all the voter machines in Washington DC. Unguarded access mind you. So they could pick the lock break the seal remove a chip and add theirs to change data. Then seal it back up in away to show no tampering. They must break into all the voting machines in they country one at a time to hack them and change the vote.

They make it sound like they hacked the voting system over the internet or something and that it was really easy to do. They were given access to one of these machines to show that it could be done. Duh....you can change the programing of any machine.

Number one who gave them access to a voter machines to write the software to do this. The goverment? Remember that just a while back the government offered to do the upgrades to the key states across the country to protect their voting machines from hackers and now this comes out :-k kinda makes you think a bit doesn't it

My point here is if a canidate wins that the Democrats or maybe the Republicans do not want I can hear it now...VOTER FRAUD/TAMPERING . Trump might be on to something here. He's been right on everything else so far. When Trump said that elections are rigged maybe he knows something we don't.

That's what the professor said when he showed how he did it on an earlier interview. He said of coarse you have to have access to the voter machine to put in the chip to change results. So there. [smilie=011.gif]

So again who gave him access to one of these machines to write up a hack program

Sorry I missed the link/citation to the source.

And anybody can gain access to a voting machine once they purchase it off of ebay.

And, for the record, an individual or group of individuals doesnt need direct access to the machine to "hack" it.

Once a system, or any part of it, connected to the network, game over, it is accessible to anyone that wants in badly enough.
And if the systems are running windows, well.......

Thanks for links. I'm aware you can hack a system through a network or over the internet. I read them and the first interview I saw covered the third article. I cannot remember who he did it with.

Thanks

They mailed out "vote by mail" stuff months ago. If there's gonna be fraud, I'd check there. Last election cycle some precinct in a northern state had 10% more votes than registered voters. Joe

I mostly expect the fraud to not be technical (hacking) too often, but more corruption based, it is simpler.

I suspect there are only a few voting machine manufacturers.
Most election offices lease/buy from low bidder.
So the low bidder machines will be all over the place.

I want to know why all the "early voting" locations I have to choose from are in the ghetto? WTF? I have to wait until election day if I don't want to vote next to "Sav-A-Lot" and the SSA office... [-X

Remember the good old days where you voted on one single day there wasn't any of this early voting BS..... we didn't bus people in....

you either did a mail-in ballot or you waited till election day and you made yourself available if you wanted to vote.

WTF happened in the last couple of elections ??

If one cannot get the ambition to go to a polling place to vote then one hasn't got the ambition to educate oneself on the persons and issues being voted for. This is just one old fat guy's opinion.
Making it easier to vote is going to to have INTENDED consequences. Who controls the voting machines and vote tabulators? Aluminum foil secured.

That's not good enough for the Democrats they want to be able to go out and round them up, tell them who to vote for and have a big cookout afterwards.

What get's me even more is the ID issue. WTF you have to have ID to get your electricity turned on, to cash a check you have to have an ID to do just about anything. Yet the Democrats scream that it's too much of a burden and discrimination to have to produce an ID to vote in an election. What B.S. everyone has some form of ID not having to show ID is an open invitation to voter fraud.

I have actually heard these snowbirds talking at the polls saying to one another that they requested an absentee ballot to send back home as well as voting down here some how. Just because they are claiming this as their residence also.

So they are voting by absentee ballot in their home state and voting down here. I stood there and listen to them bragging about. From the way they talked they were Democrats also.

FOX NEWS is talking right now again about hacking electronic voting machines not connected to the internet or a network. How these machines do not produce a paper trial of votes. They say the most vulnerable machines are in GOP leaning counties.

Again these are the counties I believe the federal government wanted to do security on to prevent hacking. The federal gov. wanted access to these machines to install software to uh :-k prevent hacking.

Right now who's in charge of the federal government. Obama and his goons are the ones that want access to these voting machines in the GOP leaning counties [-( good thing these counties said uh no we got this. [-X

If Trump wins voter fraud will be the first thing that the Democrats will scream. That the election was rigged and the election was stolen from Hillary. That there's no way a man like Trump could have possibly won an election. I guarantee you there will be riots by the liberal left.

The Democrats represent people just like the people rioting in NC extremist thugs and criminals. The Democrats stoke civil unrest to get votes.

A yankee from NY in my neighborhood used to brag about doing this too. He claimed to have voted for George Sr. twice. Once in NY and again in FL.
