US Internet Agency discovers weaknesses in voting machines


(MENAFN) According to a national cyber watchdog, electronic voting machines used in at least 16 states have security issues that hackers may exploit, rising additional doubts about the software following claims of rampant fraud and manipulation in the 2020 presidential election.

The Associated Press got a study from the United States Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) on Tuesday that revealed nine severe flaws in Dominion Voting Systems equipment, indicating they might be vulnerable to hacking if not rectified.

The agency's executive director, Brandon Wales, informed the Associated Press that CISA had no proof that the security weaknesses had ever been utilized to sway election outcomes, “states’ standard election security procedures would detect exploitation of these vulnerabilities and in many cases would prevent attempts entirely.”
