This hack isn’t something that you, as a random voter, could initiate on November 4, 2008. The video will not show you how to go into the booth and hit a random pixel on the touchscreen to access a secret voter override menu. Nope, this hack requires classic social engineering along a trojan horse loaded onto the initializing PC before the Sequoia Voting kiosk hits the polling locations. Hopefully, like most hacking exploits videos, the documentary will shed light on the vulnerabilities rather than incite malicious attacks. If not, what’s the worse that could happen?
