Election Commission open challenge : Prove How EVM can be hacked

EC throws open challenge to people to hack its EVM’s from 1st week of May

The Election Commission has thrown an open challenge to people to hack its Electronic Voting Machines. The move came after opposition parties urged it to revert to the paper ballot system raising doubts over infallibility of the EVMs.

Sources said, from first week of May, experts, scientists, technocrats can come for a week or 10 days and try to hack the machines.The Commission had announced a similar challenge in 2009 and it claimed no one could hack the EVMs. 

Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu has welcomed the Election Commission’s decision to open challenge. Speaking to media, Mr Naidu said, if anybody has proof they can show that to the commission.
