From aortega [ycombinator.com] at Hacker News:

Independent researches have found several security vulnerabilities in the e-voting machines that will be used this Sunday in the elections of local authorities in Buenos Aires. Tonight police raided homes of several of those researchers.

The vulnerabilities include a filtration of the SSL keys the machines use to communicate and authenticate with the central counting servers.

In spanish, about some of the vulnerabilities [telam.com.ar].

This morning, in America, it is Independence Day, not the Fourth of July. Many of our ancestors fought, and many died to put a stop to political repression such as we see today in Brazil.
