In April 2015, the US Commonwealth of Virginia decertified the Advanced Voting Solutions (AVS) WinVote voting machine, after concluding that it was insecure. This talk presents the results of Virginia’s analysis of the WinVote, and explores how we got to the point where a voting machine using an unpatched version of Windows XP from 2004, using hardwired WEP keys and administrator passwords, could be used for over a decade in most of Virginia.
