WhoWhatWhy asked the secretary of state’s office if it planned to conduct an audit to ascertain that unauthorized changes had not been made to voter registrations.
Broce responded, “There is no such vulnerability in the system as alleged by your article. We immediately reviewed those claims and could not substantiate any of it. To be clear, those webpages are not linked to a location containing files with confidential or sensitive information.”
The five computer security experts WhoWhatWhy contacted disagree. Each expert — Matt Bernhard, Duncan Buell, Kris Constable, Harri Hursti, and one source who asked to remain unnamed — is a national or international leader in cyber or elections security.
