Video: Hacking a Diebold Voting Machine

Not to keep picking on Diebold... OK maybe we should keep picking on Diebold. This is a great one. Seems like it should be hard, right? Well with this video, you can actually rig it in under 1 minute. You gotta see this.

After watching this, I'd be curious on your thoughts on whether this is really hacking or simply taking advantage of a built-in feature of the product? Either way, this should be seen by everyone considering buying these machines, or, better yet, by anyone asked to vote with one!

Here's yet another video on the same topic by experts at Princeton University. They have produced a video demonstrating the attack longer than the one above. They also have a full research paper, FAQs section and more on this topic. Worth watching:
