Election hacking has been a pretty hot topic recently. Now that we know it is possible, you know, controlling the fate of a governed body through manipulated misinformation, we must acknowledge that it could happen again.
Especially in a place like Manitoba, Canada. The first reported case of an unauthorized entry into a private network was conducted on June 4th, — by a magician. By this point on our technological evolutionary timeline, electromagnetic waves had been discovered and were being experimented with to communicate wireless messages. Italian engineer Guglielmo Marconi had gained much international attention for his accomplishment of the first successful wireless transmission across the Atlantic ocean 2, miles.
Marconi claimed his methods to be impenetrable and Nevil Maskelyne, the skeptic British magician, sought to prove him wrong. Turns out, besides magic, Maskelyne was also employed by the Eastern Telegraphic Company, whose wired system would suffer from these new innovations to communication technology.
And then came phreaking. Crunch got his nickname from a toy whistle that came in specially marked boxes of the sugar cereal. The seasonal publication, edited by a guy with the Orwell-inspired pen name of Emmanuel Goldstein, has served as an important resource within the hacking community as it has evolved over the years. In our complex Δεν Μπορείς Πια Να Μ Έχεις - Αλέκος Ζαζόπουλος - No 1 world, the publication today has taken on more of an activist approach toward our digital Muskrat Ramble - Various - The Golden Era Of Jazz personal freedoms.
More of a dark-grey hat than anything, the Autumn issue of The Hacker Quarterly contained an article about hacking an election. More specifically, hacking an election in Manitoba of all places. Mind you, this process is purely hypothetical.
There are, however, multiple possible ways for a candidate to rig an election - at least for him. Each party fields a candidate to each electoral division. Thirty-three days before the actual election, the current legislative assembly issues a Telluride - Kate Wolf & The Wildwood Flower - Back Roads. Then, for two weeks, enumeration takes place, with people going door-to-door collecting names of eligible voters and marking them down.
The names are entered into the database and handled with computers from this point on. Each returning office serves one electoral division, and each division is further broken down into various voting areas of about equal population. Each area consists of between and voters; each area has its own voting place where Δεν Μπορείς Πια Να Μ Έχεις - Αλέκος Ζαζόπουλος - No 1 actual voting occurs.
A week before elections take place advance polls begin, and the next week, Election Δεν Μπορείς Πια Να Μ Έχεις - Αλέκος Ζαζόπουλος - No 1 . But a certain candidate, Mr. Theoretically Corrupt, has already guaranteed himself a seat in the next legislative assembly! If you have access to the Master computer for the returning office serving that division, you have direct access to that database which, if you can edit directly, you can add voters to with no security check.
There are no checks on whether the information filled out by each enumerator is necessarily true, and so it becomes a numbers game; 65 goons one for each voting Synder I Sommersol - CC Cowboys - Blodsbrødre fill out an extra 20 names each.
For some bonus, one could add names to vacant houses or add people in such a way that will not be detected with a casual observation of the list, like matching last names with people still at the address, or looking up names of dead relatives. On voting day, these goons step into the lines at three separate voting places and work their way through each voting area.
Of course, this only gains the party the candidate is a part of one seat seat in the assembly, hardly enough to form a government or wrest power away from a majority. All each goon needs to identify himself is A Fine Romance - Billie Holiday - Billie Holiday (Box Set) that has both his fake name and the fake-or-not address on it.
But of course, this all for informational and analytical purposes only. Any use of this information or any other information available in an illegal or dishonest manner is no fault of mine and not something I condone as the writer. Email Address. Posted by Bennett Kogon.
