I wanted to break down what is discussed in the video for non-technical people.
The video features hackers at the DEF CON 26 Voter Village.
The voting machines are ES&S & in use in 24 states.
The machine highlighted in the video is an ES&S 650 scanner.
You may ask "What's root?"
Having root access to a machine gives you complete administrative control over EVERYTHING on that machine.
If the machine was hacked before the election, they could control the election results to whatever they wanted.
During a recent GA election she & two others were left alone with voting machines.
Nobody around, they could have easily hacked into those machines within seconds & left malware
That zip disk could contain a virus that could easily be spread to every machine
Once again, ZERO security patches on an OS that is counting & tabulating our votes in 24 states.
The document is the "owners manual" for the machine, including a diagram of the internals on page 11, how to "zero the totals", How to start the scanner and diagnostics.
wait for it ...
A RUSSIAN SERVER!
Yup, a Russian Server.
Election workers, maintenance, security & storage facility workers just to name a few
This short 5 minute video raises so many questions in my mind & all I see from the Fed Election Commission are excuses
