Submission + - Vulnerabilities Found in CA Voting Machines

HarvardAce writes: In a revelation sure to shock no one on Slashdot, two teams of hackers were given voting machines made by Diebold, Hart, and Sequoia that were scheduled to be used in upcoming elections in California. The teams were able to exploit vulnerabilities in both the physical design of the machines and in the software for the machines, all of which run on Windows. Details can be found on TG Daily, while the LA Times is running an article that details the responses of each of the voting machine companies.
