From aortega at Hacker News:

Independent researches have found several security vulnerabilities in the e-voting machines that will be used this Sunday in the elections of local authorities in Buenos Aires. Tonight police raided homes of several of those researchers.

The vulnerabilities include a filtration of the SSL keys the machines use to communicate and authenticate with the central counting servers.


In spanish, about some of the vulnerabilities.

This morning, in America, it is Independence Day, not the Fourth of July. Many of our ancestors fought, and many died to put a stop to political repression such as we see today in Brazil.

I should not drink and post.

My humble apologies to the people of both nations.

A small comfort might be taken in that it was a local election. While that city's ballot box might have been stuffed, at least everyone in Argentina now knows about it, so - perhaps - national and provincial elections won't be similarly rigged.
