Wow. #Orwellian #Doublespeak Below @KathyBoockvar claims to be part of a bipartisan effort to improve #ElectionSecurity. Yesterday she released a report re-certifying the #ExpressVoteXL through a secret review that was not open to the public. freespeechforpeople.org/wp-content/upl…
3 good government groups made a joint statement about what a charade this #security review of the #ExpressVoteXL was freespeechforpeople.org/election-secur…
“It is disappointing that @KathyBoockvar decided not to be fully transparent” said @kskoglund Chief Technologist of Citizens for Better Elections. “Every petition for reexamination since 1980 has included a demonstration where the public and petitioners were invited."

Tras leer este post de @ElevenPaths, he decidido hacer un breve hilo para que los simples mortales como yo podamos entender mejor de qué va la cosa y que no sean solo las mentes privilegiadas de los #hackers las que entiendan lo que significa. Abro hilo…
Antes de nada, una breve explicación de cómo funcionan los procesadores actuales: Funcionan mediante puertas lógicas cuyo resultado puede ser 0 o 1, estas puertas lógicas tienen uno o dos INPUT donde reciben un valor (1 o 0) y un OUTPUT donde devuelven un resultado (1 o 0) …
Esa es la base de toda la electrónica digital, la informática, las redes neuronales, etc. que usamos a día de hoy, basada en un sistema binario donde el resultado solo puede ser 1 o 0, muy limitada comparada con las posibilidades de un procesador cuántico...

On Election Day 2016, I was at the @NCGOP viewing party in downtown Raleigh. I was there "on assignment" during my first semester earning my master's in reporting at @UNCMJschool.

The #MuellerReport explains part of what I saw that night. 1/13
After it was clear that Trump won the presidency, all attention turned to the state race. It was too close to call. @DallasWoodhouse got on stage to update the audience. McCrory did not make an appearance. 2/13
Woodhouse said they were still waiting on results from #Durham, which had extended its polling hours due to glitches w/ the electronic polling books. @VRelection was the company providing the electronic poll books. newsobserver.com/news/local/cou… 3/13

With the 2020 elections coming on strong already, I think it is important to talk about keeping yourself safe from "hacking".
When you think of hacking, most envision someone using a computer & complex code to break into your computer.
#CyberSecurity
/1
#Hacking can take many forms, many can be done done over the phone or through email messages. These scams are known as #Phishing.
Example: A phone call where someone asks you for information that are common security questions:

Your first car
Mother's maiden name
Birth City
/2
They might pretend to be from your bank, your email or internet service provider, or your mortgage lender. They might pose as someone looking to verify your identity because of "unusual activity". This can come many ways, e.g. via a phone call, text message or email.

Deep Dive: #FTC Negotiating Multi-Billion Dollar Fine For Facebook’s Privacy Scandals; Violating 2011 Accord
#FacebookPrivacyScandal

activistpost.com/2019/02/ftc-ne…
The FTC’s probe of Facebook began in March of last year in response to big social’s entanglement with #CambridgeAnalytica, a political consultancy firm connected to a U.S. subsidiary (SHELL COMPANY) of a UK defense contractor #SCLGroup, (Strategic Communication Laboratories)
#SCL improperly accessed data on 87 million of the social site’s users. According to reports, #Facebook knew for an entire three years that #CambridgeAnalytica was abusing and misusing user data but did absolutely nothing.

@TrickFreee @tribelaw @BartSlawson @WillBenton1 @BillTilley bit.ly/2StIE1X
2) Attackers used stolen user credentials "possibly gained via a third-party supply chain compromise" to gain access to the firm's network in late 2017, before installing malware that allowed them to obtain user passwords.

Not sure what's crazier: That Trump is using a stupid Game of Thrones reference to threaten sanctions, or that he's obviously had that poster since at LEAST October

🔥WHOA🔥

THREAD: Michael Cohen made a previously unreported $50,000 payment to an unknown tech company to help Trump's 2016 campaign.🤨

Was this $50,000 used to make "deniable cash payments" to hackers, as reported in the #SteeleDossier⁉️ 1/

cnbc.com/2018/08/22/mic…
Buried in Cohen's legal documents, prosecutors say Cohen paid $50,000 for work "solicited from a technology company during and in connection with the campaign."🔥

The campaign *never reported* the $50,000 expense, and Cohen was reimbursed by Trump Org.🤨

Both = ILLEGAL‼️2/
WHO the tech company is & WHAT they did are not provided.🤔

Cohen had bank records for other expenses, but only provided a HANDWRITTEN sum for the $50,000, suggesting that the money may not have been paid out via "traditional" financial channels (meaning: CASH pay-offs).🙄 3/

POST UPDATES: Eyes here, @phnompenhpost staff!!!

1. Last Wednesday's meeting, Bill told us the management is DISPOSING POST. He also mentioned that the negotiations with potential buyers are ongoing.

LIE!!! The negotiations are all done. In fact, POST IS SOLD!

#Cambodia
2. Little did they know, the foolish EIC Kim Song, already blabbered to all staff members that @phnompenhpost is already sold to a particular buyer. Another fact from him, most meetings happened outside the country.

#Cambodia #PostSold
3. I hope you're reading carefully. Yes, Kim Song, is the source of every information leaking. Actually, remember the leaks on tax? That's him! He even managed to get that GDT letter because I influenced him to do so. What a fool.

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10 nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications
