Any chance of having the machines get hacked? [View all]

Last presidential election we heard about the threat of hacking the machines to flip the vote totals, and Anonymous assured us they were all over it--monitoring ORCA, Karl Rove's GOTV ubercomputer. They were as good as their word, as they set up a firewall that thwarted 103 attempts by Republican operatives that night to break into the Ohio machines. (Writing this from memory, but this is the account I remember hearing.)

I've seen nothing this year on a similar threat. Has Anonymous or someone else set up a firewall, just in case?
