    Provide your opinion on what an MIM is, if this is what is shown in the documents (per expert a) or not (per expert b). Instead, you choose a mental holiday. Yeah, Happy Tricking.

    •  you seem very confused (0+ / 0-)

      "What a MIM is" isn't a matter of "opinion" or dispute in this context. The question is whether one occurred.

      Spoonamore seems to think a MIM attack was directed at eight counties. duncansc seems to think it was directed at Cuyahoga. Do you really think this divergence is immaterial to evaluating whether an attack occurred?

        It is possible?

          MIM attacks are possible, yes. What's missing here is (1) a specific hypothesis and (2) a set of data that the hypothesis might explain. It seems like an 'explanation' that doesn't really explain anything and doesn't have anything to explain.

          It is, nevertheless, tautologically true that if the Smartech servers altered data en route from the counties to the SoS, then the data would be altered before they reached the SoS. By the end of the article, Spoonamore seems to be speculating that "the local elections boards computers were already under the control of the KingPin" -- in which case there would seem to be no need to alter data. Shrug.
