The video shows a fully independent security study of a Diebold AccuVote-TS voting machine, including its hardware and software. Analysis of the Diebold AccuVote-TS voting machine, in light of real election procedures, shows that it is vulnerable to extremely serious attacks. A hacker who gets physical access to a machine or its removable memory card for as little as one minute could install malicious code; malicious code on a machine could steal votes undetectably, modifying all records, logs, and counters to be consistent with the fraudulent vote count it creates. A hacker could also create malicious code that spreads automatically and silently from machine to machine during normal election activities — a voting-machine virus. Working demonstrations of these attacks are demonstrated. Mitigating these threats will require changes to the voting machine's hardware and software and the adoption of more rigorous election procedures.
