DEF CON Blog - Day 4

Day 4 - Sunday

Sunday did not have too much going on becausw all of the villages were shutting down. We tried to watch a talk about memory injection in linux, but we got kicked out because we could not find seats.

Zack Noah and I went to the voting machine village, we learned how to hack the voting machines used in the 2008 and 2012 election.

You simply pull the screen down, unplug the card reader, hit a reboot button, wait for the machine to reboot, then finally press change settings. It was very interesting and also very scary.
