An anonymous reader writes: Jim Marsh, while observing the process by which mail-in votes are counted in Maricopa County, Arizona, says that he spotted a clear felony, in that an employee from Sequoia Voting Systems, had hooked up his internet connected laptop directly to the central tabulator machine via an ethernet cord. As Marsh notes: "By law, the central tabulator system on what's supposed to be an isolated local network is completely unpatched — it's not allowed to be modified in any way since the day it shipped in 2006 or 2007. Even if the Sequoia tech didn't cross-connect the cellmodem to the Ethernet (and both appeared to be live), he could have easily "pwned" the "secure" systems with any number of ancient script-kiddy exploits."
