It's only been a couple of months since the last major Diebold e-voting machine security flaw, so apparently it's time for yet another one. Bryan writes in to point out the report from the Open Voting Foundation, who took apart a Diebold machine to show how easily it could be hacked. At this point, it's difficult to know how to respond. These reports seem to come out every few months -- and Diebold's response has been just to laugh it off or make life difficult for election officials who question the accuracy of their machines. While there's some evidence that Congress is finally starting to pay attention, it's truly amazing that politicians have ignored such reports for so many years. Safe and accurate elections should be the goal of everyone -- and to think that it's been treated as a laughing matter by those who create the machines, despite report after report of flaws and questionable behavior, is really disturbing.
