I’m drowning in information this morning and can’t sort some of it out. Here’s some low hanging fruit. Fulton county allowed an examination of their equipment to be done. I’ve told you about there being some good guy counties, but this was a little different. It was done somewhat openly and a report was issued. It was not a “full forensic audit” and there isn’t much talk about how it came to be. They are now facing recriminations for allowing that to happen. If you are confused, this is Fulton county PA not GA. In Ga they are still being recalcitrant.
Because the equipment had it’s images copied the state is telling them they will not certify the equipment for use and they will have to buy or lease new equipment. In other words, the logic and accuracy testing that they do to certify equipment can’t be trusted to tell us if equipment has been maliciously tampered with.
The PDF report is below. I'm putting this together quickly and I haven't read tat report in a while. As I recall, this found nothing nefarious. It pretty much just says we found vulnerabilities but no problems. I thought it indicated that a deeper look would be warranted. Judge for yourself.
