"India's EVMs are Vulnerable to Fraud "

Contrary to claims by Indian election authorities, the paperless electronic voting systems used in India suffer from significant vulnerabilities. Even brief access to the machines could allow criminals to alter election results.

In this video, we demonstrate two kinds of attacks against a real Indian EVM. One attack involves replacing a small part of the machine with a look-alike component that can be silently instructed to steal a percentage of the votes in favor of a chosen candidate. These instructions can be sent wirelessly from a mobile phone. Another attack uses a pocket-sized device to change the votes stored in the EVM between the election and the public counting session, which in India can be weeks later.

These attacks are neither complicated nor difficult to perform, but they would be hard to detect or defend against. The best way to prevent them is to count votes using paper ballots that voters can see.

Ein Kommentar von Martin Fehndrich wahlrecht.de zum Bericht: Bezugnehmend auf (S.95) “Wahlbeobachtung von E-Voting [..] eine reine Beobachtung der Vorgänge am Wahltag lässt nur minimale Schlüsse zu.”

Das ist doch schon nah an “geht nicht”.
