Dr. Avi Rubin is currently Professor of Computer Science at John Hopkins University.
He "accidently"got his hands on a copy of the Diebold software program--Diebold's
source code--which runs their e-voting machines.
Dr. Rubin's students pored over 48,609 lines of code that make up this software.
One line in partictular stood out over all the rest:
All commercial programs have provisions to be encrypted so as to protect them
from having their contents read or changed by anyone not having the key..The
line that staggered the Hopkin's team was that the method used to encrypt the
Diebold machines was a method called Digital Encryption Standard (DES), a code
that was broken in 1997 and is NO LONGER USED by anyone to secure prograns.F2654hd4
was the key to the encryption. Moreover, because the KEY was IN the source code,
all Diebold machines would respond to the same key. Unlock one, you have then
I can't believe there is a person alive who wouldn't understand the reason
this was allowed to happen. This wasen't a mistake by any stretch of the imagination.
This was a fixed election, plain and simple.
This second coup d'etat is either stopped now or America ceases to be.
