Last week, a security hole was discovered with Windows XP voting machines that could give hackers remote access. Will Russia be using this?
It took hackers just two hours to remotely connect a keyboard and mouse to the voting machine over wi-fi, hit control-alt-delete and start playing Minesweeper. However, Russia could use this exploit to do much worse stuff.

Perhaps we need to go back to paper and pencil voting.

Yes the machines could be hacked....if they were connected to the internet.....their not.

Voting machines aren't supposed to be hooked up to the internet. And WindowsXP is now obsolescent and unsupported by Microsoft. This really shouldn't be any surprise that someone could hack. a computer with XP on it.

How prevalent are the machines? I doubt they are at all. Please inform yourself before crying "the sky is falling". LOL
