Moscow's blockchain voting system cracked in August 2019
Dear community, They said that Moscow's blockchain voting system that used Ethereum as the basis for their platform was cracked in August https://www.coindesk.com/moscow-blockchain-voting-system-completely-insecure-says-researcher Does anybody know in detail about the situation? I am just guessing that they use Ethereum blockchain codes and then modified the encryption part for their own case. And due to that weakness in encryption that their system was cracked. Am I right? Thank you so much for your help! Crystal
I have heard about it. I am not sure if it was cracked in fact. Nobody takes that project seriously - it was kinda a pilot (within a small fraction of voters) fast implemented project without serious purpose. If you dive deeper you will find that blockchain itself is not needed in that architecture.
