'Anonymous' to Comelec: Print voting receipts to disable virus in VCMs

Hacktivist group Anonymous allegedly told the Commission on Elections to print voting receipts to disable a virus in vote counting machines.

In a video that went viral on Facebook, Anonymous claimed that they have "deployed a virus in the SD cards" used in VCMs last week through their "agents."

The group said the virus sleeps in the machines until the counting of votes on May 9, 2016, the election day. Once activated, it will "infect" the entire network and reflect Anonymous as the winner for President of the Philippines.

If the Comelec doesn't turn on the printing of receipts, there is no way of knowing who really won the elections.

"If you turn on the printing of receipts, this will automatically disable the virus and you can proceed with your peaceful and credible elections," Anonymous allegedly said in the viral video.

While many thought that the video is real, some said it's fake.

According to a tipster, the same video was used when Anonymous warned to hack the ISIS website, based on the hand movements of the speaker.
