New Delhi: Till yet the results of Gujarat State Assembly elections gives us opinion that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government seems to be once again forming majority and if Saffron Party creates government, then this will be their sixth tenure in continuation. But some people again raised question on credibility of EVMs.

 

 

But on other hand, the opposition parties since from election campaign have been raising questions over the credibility of EVM. Now in this regards even before the counting begins.

 

 

The Patidar leader Hardik Patel and Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani again raised questioned on EVMs. But is it appropriate to put question on EVM credibility as it is not clear till that EVM can be tampered?

 

 

Basically, the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) as its name sound is a machine which is used for voting during elections along with a ballot unit and 5 meter cable. This machine can also be run from a 6-volt battery.

 

Is tempering is really possible of Electronic Voting Machines during elections?:

 

The voter has to press the button given in front of the candidate of his choice, and once the vote has been casted the machine is locked after taking a single vote. After which this machine will only be opened with the new ballot number. Only five votes will registered in the EVM in just one minute.

 

 

The EVM machines have been a part of Indian elections for almost 15 years. At the same time, California in US and other states had banned the EVM without any paper trails.

 

 

According to CIA’s Security Expert Mr. Stiegel, electronic voting machines in Venezuela, Macedonia and Ukraine had stopped being used due to various types of disturbances. England and France did not use them either.

 

 

Although, information about EVM machine is based on the reports coming from media, about which ‘Aaj Ki Khabar’ news web portal does not take any kind of credibility.

The apps are available on the Apple App Store as Beetle VPN, Buckler VPN, and Hat VPN Pro, Avast said.

These three apps have been downloaded over 420K, 271K, and 96K times, respectively, between April 2019 and May 2020, according to data from Sensor Tower, a mobile apps marketing intelligence and insights company.

“Fleeceware apps fall into a gray area, because they are not malicious per se, they simply charge users absurd amounts of money for weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions for features that should be offered at much lower costs,” Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Head of Mobile Threats & Security at Avast, said in a statement.

The apps” all have high ratings, ranging from 4.6 to 4.8, and include enthusiastic reviews, all similarly written, which Avast considers may potentially be fake.
