Oh, nooo! Nobody could have seen *that* coming… oh, wait, yes, yes, we did.

"The cryptographic backdoor exists in a part of the system that is supposed to verify that all of the ballots and votes counted in an election are the same ones that voters cast.

@tbr @vantablack weird that the article refers to it as a "backdoor" even though there's no proof that the vulnerability was inserted intentionally, but otherwise the article is okay.

@devurandom @vantablack Even if not intentionally added, it can still be used as such.

@tbr they could have saved some energy by not encrypting in the first place. damn those evil oil companies.
