Submission + - Election Assistance Commission hacked using SQL injection. (reuters.com)

whoever57 writes: The commission that is responsible for ensuring the integrity of voting machines was itself hacked. The hacker gained access to non-public reports on weaknesses in voting machines. The hack occurred after the election, so it is unlikely that this hack resulted in changing the result. However, if one hacker can break in, how does anyone know that there was not a prior hack?

The hack used an SQL injection flaw to gain access to usernames and passwords which were then cracked.

they are inmates so considering that being locked up has already been deemed acceptable based on what they've done, don't be thinking they deserve the same rights as an inmate as you and i do on the outside

I am SO sorry! I didn't realize that rules against torture, forced self-incrimination, execution of a person without due process, etc...all that stuff goes out the window after you're a prisoner!

You must be an attorney to be so smart about constitutional law!!!
