PC-Wahl Hack by the CCC

Mon, Jan 1, 2018

Last year, the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) hacked the software which was used in the German national elections. They made their findings public before the elections took place but the software, riddled with vulnerabilities, was still used. During the most recent Chaos Communication Congress the involved researchers gave a nice talk (German) (also available with English dubbed audio) on the subject which I can recommend as it is not only informative but entertaining as well. Also you do not have to be a hacker or programmer to understand this. While they do have some technical slides, on the whole this is very digestable even for non-professionals.

After all, this software (or something equally insecure) might be used in your country as well.
