6. Anonymous claimed to use a firewall to block rove's hackers

 

My read was Antonymous hackers installed code to block Rove's virtual private networking (VPN) connections to vulnerable servers used for voting. Anonymous called their firewall, the Great Oz. I suspect they installed a firewall to block certain TCP and UDP ports that Rove's hackers were using. This would be easier than trying to change remote access passwords.

Certainly, OH was one of the states Rove was trying to hack. Keep in mind, too, that Romney had links to a voting machine company whose equipment was used in the OH election. See http://www.salon.com/2012/10/23/romney_linked_voting_machine_company_to_count_votes_in_ohio/

Romney was very focused on PA ,too, a state Nate Silver suggested Team Romney had no chance of winning. I suspect Rove had found some voting server vulnerabilities there, too.

Hopefully Anonymous will publish more information so the Rove's operatives can be arrested and charged with vote tempering. Server logs in the battleground states need to be examined closely for unauthorized access.
