+ - Hardware Attacks against India's E-Voting Machines->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "India, the world's largest democracy, votes entirely on government made electronic voting machines that authorities claim are "tamperproof", "infallible", and "perfect," but last week security researchers proved that they can be manipulated to steal elections. A team led by Hari Prasad, Professor J. Alex Halderman, and Rop Gonggrijp released an awesome video that shows off hardware hacks they built. These machines are much simpler than e-voting designs used in the US, but as the research paper explains, this makes attacking the hardware even easier. Halderman's students at the University of Michigan took only about a week to build a replacement display board that lies about the vote totals, and the team also built a pocket-sized device that clips onto the memory chips, with the machine powered on, and rewrites the votes. Clippy says, 'It looks like you're trying to rig an election...'"
