Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh): A city-based technology company, NetIndia, which commissioned a collaborative study on the possibility of tampering with electronic voting machines, has claimed that the EVMs were ‘vulnerable to fraud'.
In a release here, the company claimed that its research had proved that “even brief access to the machines [EVMs] could allow criminals to alter election results.”
The research was done by Hari Prasad, Managing Director of NetIndia, in collaboration with Rop Gonggrijp, a security researcher from the Netherlands, and J. Alex Halderman of the University of Michigan in the U.S.
In a video released on its website (http://IndiaEVM.org) on Wednesday, the researchers show two demonstration attacks against a “real” Indian EVM.
One attack involves replacing a small part of the machine with a look-alike component that can be silently instructed to steal a percentage of votes polled in favour of a chosen candidate. These instructions, the company claimed, can be sent wirelessly from a mobile phone.
The other attack uses a pocket-sized device to change the votes stored in the EVM between the polling and the public counting session.
