Anonymous hackea el sitio web de la Casa Presidencial

El famoso grupo de hackers, ha realizado este día un ataque al servidor de la casa presidencial y ha dejado un fuerte mensaje de advertencia que a partir de hoy todos sitios del gobierno, incluyendo secretarías, entes semi autónomos y todos los que tengan extensión .gob.hn, serán atacados en protesta por el accionar del gobierno que ellos consideran se ha hecho poco en el tema de la inseguridad y violencia, así como la liberación del joven Kevin Joshua Solórzano.

El gobierno ante esta advertencia, deberá poner atención a mejorar la seguridad en sus portales y sistemas informáticos para evitar un caos en la información pública y clasificada.

A pesar de que el equipo de IT se ha puesto a trabajar para restaurar el sitio, en la parte superior sigue apareciendo que el sitio ha sido hackeado por Anonymous.

There’s Going To Be a Recount (Of Sorts)

Monday, December 2, 2013

This morning Xiomara Castro and the LIBRE Party filed a formal set of complaints about the vote counting process and its lack of transparency, documenting errors and discrepancies in the formal counting of the tally sheets of the over 16,000 Mesas Electorales Receptoras (MER).

LIBRE representative Ricki Moncada then read the document to the assembled press.

The Tribunal Supremo Electoral (TSE) head David Matamoros agreed to a public recount of the Actas: not the votes themselves, just a recount of the votes as recorded on the tally sheets.

This, of course, is a compromise.  Ballot boxes will not be re-opened; individual votes will not be recounted.

It’s a vexing compromise because some of the problems that LIBRE alleges include alteration of the Actas themselves, which they say they can document.

Remember that the election procedures gave the political parties a number of ways to get copies of the scanned/reported Acta at each step.  The party representative at every MER was supposed to be given a copy of the scanned Acta to take back to the party. Once the scanned Acta hit the TSE’s computers, a copy was supposed to be sent to each party, and to the foreign vote auditors.

LIBRE says it has Actas sent to them by the TSE with scan dates of the early morning hours of the election day, bearing data that looks like the test data used to validate the system in earlier runs.  LIBRE also says they have copies of Actas that don’t match the Acta image in the TSE central computing database, with different signatures and vote tallys.

Since the election itself on November 24, there has been a public recount of the scanned actas going on at this site:  http://conteo.votosocial.org.  In addition, there has been a Facebook-coordinated effort to identify Actas that contain problematic information or were mis-recorded in the TSE’s vote counting system.

Through these independent projects, more than 1600 problematic Actas had been identified by Saturday, November 30.

There is a further 2000+ Actas which the TSE has “sequestered” because of unspecified problems, for which vote counts, and images, have not been released.  Then there are a series of MERs for which vote totals are recorded, but no Acta image is posted.

I have been involved in the public recount of the Actas, entering the values from the scanned images of the Actas into a system that then recounts the votes once 3 separate reviews of the transcription agree that the data are correct. I also have reviewed Actas flagged on the Facebook page as problematic.  I can say first-hand that I found inconsistencies in more than 500 Actas I’ve reviewed over the last week.

Some of the inconsistencies were transcription errors: the TSE had an enormous problem going from the hand-written numbers to recording those numbers in their MS-SQL database.  Over time, the TSE seemed to be correcting these transcription errors, though in a non-transparent fashion since they never acknowledged a single one of them.  Many still remained as of this past Saturday.

More troubling, though, is that the vote totals on far too many Actas added up to more than the number of people who were reported to have voted in that particular MER.

Each Acta contains a field “Ciudadanos que votaron”, which the TSE training manual documented as being calculated by taking the total number of ballots at the start of voting, and subtracting the number of blank ballots remaining at the end of voting.  The starting number of ballots and the calculated “Ciudadanos que votaron” are recorded on the official tally sheet.  The total number of votes being reported on the tally sheet should add up to the number of “Cuidadanos que votaron” but very frequently it does not. Based on my experience of trying to review the results, minor errors of 1, 2, and 3 over-votes are common, while over-votes of 50 or more happen less often.

Reviewing and recounting the Actas alone will not correct these over-votes.  They merely become  enshrined in the result.

The public vote count shows results that differ from the TSE count, though not enough to change the outcome of the election.  But there are still 4.4% of the Actas which cannot be validated because the TSE released no image of them. This is enough to affect the margin between the two leading candidates, which might reflect the tighter race that most observers expected.

Then there’s the issue of database security.  Anonymous Honduras has twice penetrated the vote counting center, and currently (late afternoon on December 2) has replaced the TSE’s main web page with their own.  Their penetration made it clear they could have easily, and invisibly, changed the results in favor of any candidate they wanted to.  From details like their ability to show administrative tables, it seems that they had complete control over the database, and the TSE was apparently none the wiser.

So, there will be some sort of a recount of the Actas, with representatives of the political parties present to agree that the data entered into the system is what is on the Acta. The TSE has no idea what the procedures will be, or how they will do this, but something will happen.

It’s a step in the direction of transparency. But not the kind of recount that would put to rest, ultimately, the kinds of doubts that have been raised.

Anonymous and the TSE

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Early Thursday Tiempo published a story headlined Anonymous enters the database of the TSE.

At the top of the screen is an image with the following caption:

Anonymous Honduras publicó esta imagen en su cuenta de Twitter en la cual demuestra que el Tribunal Supremo Electoral no contabiliza en el informe oficial 80 votos obtenidos por LIBRE, según el acta  que registra los datos del centro de votación de una urna de la Escuela Ramón Amaya Amador de La Lima, Cortés.

[Anonymous Honduras published this image in its Twitter account in which it shows that the Tribunal Supremo Electoral did not count in the official results 80 votes obtained by LIBRE, according to the acta registering the data from the voting center of the polling place at the Escuela Ramón Amaya Amador in La Lima, Cortés.]

The lead paragraph is blunt:

Los hackers han puesto en tela de juicio la seguridad de la base de datos del Tribunal Supremo Electoral (TSE) y han afirmado por medio de las redes sociales que si hubo fraude electrónico en estas elecciones.

[The hackers have cast down on the security of the TSE database and have affirmed by means  of social networks that there has been electronico fraud in these elections.]

Tiempo quotes Anonymous of Honduras saying there were “thousands” of pieces of evidence of this fraud on a blog they established where

los seguidores de esa organización cibernética que actúa bajo la clandestinidad colocaron imágenes de actas y las tablas oficiales de resultados que no concuerdan con los datos.

[followers of this cybernetic organization that acted clandestinely placed images of actas and the official tables of results that do not agree with the data.]

Separately, Tiempo reports that another hacker published details for accessing the database. They quote their own IT specialist, José Carlos Ramos saying that

the hackers are trying to demonstrate that the system of the TSE doesn’t have the necessary security measures. “If it is the way the hackers say, the data base can be accessed from any place in Honduras or the world… It could be consulted and modified by a user that had access privileges from someplace outside the Tribunal.”

Needless to say, this is not good news for those who would like the TSE count to be accepted as official and accurate. And it is not good news for Hondurans in general who turned out for this historic election.

Anonymous ingresa a base de datos del TSE

Anonymous Honduras publicó esta imagen en su cuenta de Twitter en la cual demuestra que el Tribunal Supremo Electoral no contabiliza en el informe oficial 80 votos obtenidos por LIBRE, según el acta  que registra los datos del centro de votación de una urna de la Escuela Ramón Amaya Amador de La Lima, Cortés.
  San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Los hackers han puesto en tela de juicio la seguridad de la base de datos del Tribunal Supremo Electoral (TSE) y han afirmado por medio de las redes sociales que si hubo fraude electrónico en estas elecciones.

Anonymous Honduras, a través de su cuenta en Twitter @legionhonduras, divulgó ayer el código de la base de datos y mostró las incongruencias de resultados entre las cifras de las actas con los reportes del TSE.

“Así se hizo fraude en estas elecciones 2013: Aquí en este blog encontraras algunas de las miles pruebas que http://fb.me/VfYr1qcS”, publicó Anonymous.

En ese sitio, los seguidores de esa organización cibernética que actúa bajo la clandestinidad colocaron imágenes de actas y las tablas oficiales de resultados que no concuerdan con los datos.

Al mismo tiempo publicó la dirección donde los hondureños pueden encontrar el IP del servidor del Tribunal y el código de la base de datos en la cual contabiliza los resultados.

Otro hacker identificado como @hackatrachos publicó fotos en Twitter para demostrar que había penetrado la base de datos del Tribunal.

“Aaahh quieren ver registros de las tablas? Claro para servirles… #StopFraudeHN @LegionHonduras @SalvadorNasrala pic.twitter.com/GTiBy6dbvm”, publicó el hacker.

Desde el punto de vista de José Carlos Ramos, jefe del departamento de informática de DIARIO TIEMPO, los hackers tratan de demostrar que el sistema del TSE no reúne las medidas necesarias de seguridad.

“Sí es tal como lo aseguran los hackers, la base de datos puede ser accedida desde cualquier lugar de Honduras y del mundo”, dijo.

En otras palabras, según el, “podría ser consultada y modificada por un usuario que tenga privilegios de acceso desde un lugar fuera del Tribunal”.
