An 11-year-old boy hacked into a model of Florida’s state election website and changed the voting results in just minutes over the weekend.
The successful hack happened during a hacking competition held at DEFCON over the weekend, according to the event’s organizers.
The annual hacking event hosted a competition where 39 kids between the ages 6 and 17 raced to hack replicas of the Secretary of State websites in six swing states.
“The quickest exploit was done by an 11 year old in 10 minutes,” the organizers announced in a tweet.
The boy, who has been identified as Emmett Brewer, successfully hacked the replicated Florida voting site.
