Major security holes found in voting machines
From the story directly below. Some investigative reporters say they’ve uncovered major security holes in Diebold voting systems.
Among their findings:
1) They could open the password file, copy an encrypted password elsewhere, then use that password to access data.
2) The machines keep three sets of books. Set 2 can be changed by anyone who knows how to use Microsoft Access. This will effect the vote totals.
As a programmer, I find it appalling that voting data is kept in Access, is not encrypted, and the system is so badly designed that data can easily be changed.
