Rock The Vote, In A Bad Way

Three computer researchers from the Information Security Institute at Johns Hopkins University, with help from a Rice University computer scientist, say they've uncovered vulnerabilities in the software purportedly used by Diebold Election Systems. More than 32,000 Diebold electronic-voting systems were used in U.S. general elections in November.
