Hacking Voting Machines

I came across this article while perusing Security Focus' Website. It talks about how insecure the electronic voting machines that Diebold, an Ohio company, manufactures. Pretty interesting stuff, though there are links in the article to anti-war sites, and near the end the column takes on an all-too-often "Linux is great, everything else sucks" sort of tone when referring to electronic voting machines in Australia.

I was surprised to read that voting results were transmitted across the internet.

Pretty frightening to me.
