The internet is full of buzz, about a Dominion Server that was confiscated in Frankfurt Germany. This server supposedly proves that Trump won the vote by a wide margin.
My google search directed me to our trusted (left-leaning) fact-checkers, and they assured me that this was fake-news.
Then I tried to google German news. Finding something about this would have surprised me. Friends in Germany often send me links to German news media discussions about Trump, and they are so anti-Trump, they look like CNN on steroids.
Yet, I did find a German-language site that spoke of this Dominion issue and also showed Trump winning by a large margin.
They also indicated that China was somehow involved in our election fraud issue.
It's in German language, but you can easily get their message from their pictures.
Checking that company, gnews.org, it turns out that this news media company is based in the USA, and therefore also has a political agenda.
Conclusion…. So far no real proof of a Dominion machine being confiscated in Germany.
However, on their site was an interesting news interview. I found its original in English language at the link below…
He is a software security expert, and he claimed, days before the election, that Dominion could easily be hacked. The data could be changed by outside operators, and the software is programmed so that you wouldn’t even be able to forensically detect the fraud later on.
And our MSM calls this the “most secure election in history” !!!! What a joke!!!
mcfarm mentioned this issue here before…..here is the video
You guys are a trip (-:
You're acting in similar fashion to the ones you condemned for acting this way 4 years ago after their very tough loss.
And the ones that acted this way 4 years ago, after losing are condemning Trump supporters for acting like they did 4 years ago.
4 years ago, we were hearing the exact same absurd things from the Clinton supporters and some in the MSM who refused to acknowledge the loss or that Trump was elected fairly or should be the president.
This goes way deeper than we first thought.
Russia’s efforts to hack the 2016 presidential election were much more widespread than originally thought. The Russian campaign hit 39 states — twice as many as originally reported — and in one case hackers tried to delete and alter voter data.
That’s the startling revelation from a Bloomberg report this morning. The extent of the cyber intrusion was so widespread that Obama administration officials used the infamous “red phone” — which is really a digital communications channel that allows the countries to send information back and forth — to show Kremlin leaders what they had discovered. It remains unclear, though, if these intrusions had any direct effect on the election’s outcome.
Still, this is another example of Russia taking advantage of the many online vulnerabilities in America’s voting network, which is comprised of software companies, online registration sites, and vital information that election officials willingly send to each other over email.
All of them play an important part in obtaining and safeguarding sensitive voter information, but it appears the Russians have figured out how to get that data.
“If you got 10 people working to try and figure out what the US election system is for 18 months, of course they’re going to figure it out,” said Beau Woods, a cybersecurity expert at the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank.
Russia, of course, denies having anything to do with the hackers that pulled this off. Either way, the news comes at an inauspicious time for President Donald Trump, who has had to deal with congressional hearings featuring former FBI Director James Comey last week and Attorney General Jeff Sessions today, each digging deep into his campaign’s possible collusion with Russia.
Robert Mueller’s latest indictments raise new questions about the integrity of Georgia’s voting infrastructure. Why is the state stonewalling?
When the Department of Homeland Security notified 21 states in 2017 that they had been targeted by Russian hackers intent on interfering with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Georgia—despite having one of the most vulnerable voting systems in the country—was not among them. Trump won the state by nearly 6 percentage points over Democrat Hillary Clinton, whose campaign had hoped to pick up the reliably Republican state for the first time since 1992.
DHS said Russian hackers had probed websites in the 21 states looking for vulnerabilities, and in at least one state—Illinois—they found a vulnerability in a server that hosted the state’s voter registration database, allowing them to access 90,000 voter records. But the Russians were apparently unsuccessful in finding vulnerabilities in other state election sites and evidently never bothered at all with servers in Georgia, according to the agency.
This was odd because around the same time the Russians were targeting other states, a security researcher in Georgia named Logan Lamb discovered a serious security vulnerability in an election server in his state. The vulnerability allowed him to download the state’s entire database of 6.7 million registered voters and would have allowed him or any other intruder to alter versions of the database distributed to counties prior to the election. Lamb also found PDFs with instructions and passwords for election workers to sign in to a central server on Election Day as well as software files for the state’s ExpressPoll pollbooks—the electronic devices used by poll workers to verify voters’ eligibility to vote before allowing them to cast a ballot.
The unpatched and misconfigured server had been vulnerable since 2014 and was managed by the Center for Election Systems, a small training and testing center that until recently occupied a former two-story house on the Kennesaw State University campus. Until last year, the Ccnter was responsible for programming every voting machine across the state, raising concerns that if the Russians or other adversaries had been able to penetrate the center’s servers as Lamb had done, they might have been able to find a way to subvert software distributed by the center to voting machines across the state.
But Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who was the only state election official to refuse security assistance from the Department of Homeland Security prior to the election, has insisted for more than a year that his state’s voting systems were never at risk in the 2016 election, because DHS told him the Russians had not targeted Georgia.
This changed on Friday, however, when the Justice Department unsealed the indictment against 12 Russian intelligence officers who oversaw an operation that, the department says, included targeting county websites in Georgia."
