An 11-year-old changed election results on a replica Florida state website in under 10 minutes

quote [ An 11-year-old boy on Friday was able to hack into a replica of the Florida state election website and change voting results found there in under 10 minutes during the world’s largest yearly hacking convention ]

"I will accept the results when the election is free and clean. I cannot accept fraud." - Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador

One ballot machine, used in 23 US states, carries a cybersecurity flaw that was reported over a decade ago, the hackers claim.

I’m pretty eleven year olds have the proper mindset to thrive in US politics though.

It does seem strange that after hundreds of years of politics involving diplomacy, careful planning and consensus building, it turns out that throwing a tantrum works just as well.
