    The group that studied Indian EVMs and discovered they could be hacked, then got silenced.


  2. Aditya S

    Something to do with the tampering or vulnerability of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in India.


  3. folks who proved EVMs can be rigged. the middle guy was jailed for stealing an EVM i think, and the other two were denied visas or stopped when they landed in the country.


  4. They stated that EVMs could be tampered with
    stated that India’s EVMs are no longer tamperproof

    These three dudes claimed that Indian Electronic Voting Machines were not tamper-proof and had asked the election body to explore other forms of voting that provide ‘transparency’


  6. Electronic Voting Machine used in India are NOT tamper-proof


  7. They showed that EVMs(Electronic Voting Machines) can be tampered?

    Electronic Voting Machine(EVM) report authors (left to right) J. Alex Halderman, Hari K. Prasad, and Rop Gonggrijp, holding the EVM they studied.
    They showed that the EVM data can be tampered. By this way, Hari was arrested by police on the case of theft of EVM.

    The people are authors of the study which exposed the vulnerability of Indian EVM’s to fraud.


  11. Muthu sundaresan

    Hari K prasad a Hydrabad based electronics engineer demonstrated that Electronic voting machines used in India is not perfect .He showed that it can be hacked.

    India’s Electronic Voting Machine vulnerabilities


  16. Almost a repeat of http://www.boiledbeans.net/index.php?s=EVM

    Hari K Prasad along with the two other guys proved that the EVMs were vulnerable to fraud.

    “India’s EVMs are Vulnerable to Fraud”, a study which is a collaboration by security researchers from India, the United States, and the Netherlands(Hari K. Prasad, J. Alex Halderman and Rop Gonggrijp)

    After these researchers figured out that India’s electronic voting machines (evm) – Hari Prasad was arrested for stealing one of these machines from Mumbai. It’s controversial that he’s accused of theft because the researchers claim they received the machine from someone with legal access, and Prasad won’t reveal the name of the person who gave him access to the machine. Many people see this as political pressure in light of the vulnerabilities that were disclosed.

    After these researchers figured out that India’s electronic voting machines (evm) are vulnerable to attacks and tampering that would let vote stealing take place, Hari Prasad was arrested for stealing one of these machines from Mumbai. It’s controversial that he’s accused of theft because the researchers claim they received the machine from someone with legal access, and Prasad won’t reveal the name of the person who gave him access to the machine. Many people see this as political pressure in light of the vulnerabilities that were disclosed.

    These are UK scientists who showed that the EVM can be hacked

    MR. Hari Prasad proved Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) can be rigged.

    He was arrested on charge on stealing the EVM for testing from a gove office


  26. Sanjeet Dash

    It is alleged that they stole the EVM for their research to prove EVM tampering

    researchers put a paper that indian EVMs can be rigged. government got pissed off.

    The three people conducted a scientific study that proved that the Indian Electronic Voting Machines could be tampered and they are not foolproof


  29. Mo

    Showed some electronic voting machines are vulnerable to attack?

    A study to show that EVMs could be tampered with.


  31. Prabhu DC

    They apparently stole India’s electronic voting machine to prove that they can be hacked. Hari was arrested for this.


  32. vkamath

    The fact that EVM’s can be hacked. Repeat question(kinda)?


  33. Vishwas B Sharma

    Easy one there… These guys showed that the electronic voting systems which the authorities clam to be tamper proof can actually be tampered with very easily.

    Hari K. Prasad, J. Alex Halderman, Rop Gonggrijp.
    They showed that Indian EVM are vulnerable to fraud…n were arrested for theft :(
