VI. Tech Thursday
National Tech: This week, representatives from DefCon, the hacking conference and the Atlantic Council think tank shared findings from DefCon’s Voting Village where hackers were able to physically interact with U.S. voting machines. According to Wired, work over three days at the Village underscored the fundamental vulnerability of the devices, and raised questions about important issues, like the trustworthiness of hardware parts manufactured in other countries, including China. But most importantly, the report highlights the dire urgency of securing US voting systems before the 2018 midterm elections.
