Hackers rickrolled a voting machine at DefCon 2017

Hackers at DefCon 2017 this weekend managed to get a WinVote machine to play Rick Astley — and in the process demonstrated fundamental flaws with digital voting. More than 30 voting machines made up the Voting Village at DefCon. It took the attendees mere minutes to crack open the devices — metaphorically speaking. Their first order of business was to make it play one of the WinVote machines play “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley, because of course it was. The WinVote is now the newest music playing device in the village! #DEFCON #votingvillage pic.twitter.com/litn3YhaOX — DEFCON VotingVillage…This story continues at The Next Web

Sorry celebs, I don’t want your autograph (how about a like or retweet?)

Wonder Woman was my first. She was expressing her opinions on politics, and I stopped to pay attention. Afterwards, I followed her, though she probably didn’t know it. I spoke up, she liked what I had to say. The rest is history. There’d be plenty more after her, but you never forget your first like. It isn’t as creepy as it sounds. Legitimately, over the course of regular Facebook conversation, I got a ‘like’ on one of my comments from Linda Carter. See, I followed her page, not her.
