GEORGIA 10/7/21 — GA Lawyer Kurt Olsen joined Bannon’s War Room today to discuss the massive election hacking report that is being suppressed by a GA judge. Shortly after the 2016 election in 2017, Computer Science and Engineering Professor, J. Alex Halderman, made a presentation to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about the woefully inadequate cyber security of our elections. He has recently submitted a 25 thousand word report in an ongoing GA lawsuit, Donna Curling vs. Brad Raffensperger, regarding the 2020 election. Judge Amy Totenberg, who previously ruled the Dominion machines wer..., has put the report under seal. The professor has asked the judge to release the report to CISA for national security especially because it shows how Dominion may be hacked switch votes remotely. This report likely confirms the types of hacking that Mike Lindell has been working to expose ever since the first reports of Dominion electronic voting machine issues in M....
“Our highly computerized election infrastructure is vulnerable to sabotage and even to cyber attacks that can change votes. These realities risk making our election results more difficult for the American People to trust. I know America’s voting machines are vulnerable, because my colleagues and I have hacked them, repeatedly, as part of a decade of research studying the technology that operates elections and learning how to make it stronger.
We’ve created attacks that can spread from machine to machine like a computer virus and silently change election outcomes. We’ve studied touch screen and optical scan systems, and in every single case we found ways for attackers to sabotage machines and to steal votes. These capabilities are certainly within reach for America’s enemies.
As you know states choose their own voting technology, and while some states are doing well with security, others are alarmingly vulnerable. This puts the entire nation at risk. In close elections an attacker can probe the most important swing states with swing counties. Find areas with the weakest protections and strike there. In a close election year changing a few votes in key localities could be enough to tip national results. The key lesson from 2016 is that these threats are real.”
Senator Jim Risch: “If you were sitting in Russia right now and wanted to do the same thing that you had done, would that ability be dependent upon the machines, or whatever system is used, being connected to the Internet?”
“That ability would depend on whether pieces of election IT equipment, IT offices where the election programming is prepared, are ever connected to the Internet. The machines themselves don’t have to be directly connected to the Internet for a remote attacker to target them.”— Professor J. Alex Halderman senate testimony on Bannon’s War Room
Professor J Alex Halderman’s Expert Rebuttal Declaration
“In my report—a 25,000-word document that is the product of twelve weeks of intensive testing of the Dominion equipment provided by Fulton County—I find that Georgia’s BMDs contains multiple severe security flaws. Attackers could exploit these flaws to install malicious software, either with temporary physical access (such as that of voters in the polling place) or remotely from election management systems. I explain in detail how such malware, once installed, could alter voters’ votes while subverting all the procedural protections practiced by the State, including acceptance testing, hash validation, logic and accuracy testing, external firmware validation, and risk-limiting audits (RLAs). Finally, I describe working proof-of-concept malware that I am prepared to demonstrate in court.”
“My report concludes, inter alia, that Georgia’s BMDs are not sufficiently secured against technical compromise to withstand vote-altering attacks by bad actors who are likely to target future elections in the state; that the BMDs’ vulnerabilities compromise the auditability of Georgia’s paper ballots; that the BMDs can be compromised to the same extent as or more easily than the DREs they replaced; and that using these vulnerable BMDs for all in-person voters, as Georgia does, greatly magnifies the level of security risk compared to using hand-marked paper ballots and providing BMDs to voters who need or request them.”— Professor J Alex Halderman’s Expert Rebuttal Declaration
Judge Seals Report on Voting Machine Vulnerability‘ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY’
A judge in a Georgia election security lawsuit is working to tamp down voting machine conspiracy theories. But sealing a court file could stoke the controversy even more.
