There be a problem with them California voting machines

You know the voting machines they have in the US? Yeah, the ones that seemed to get Bush elected instead of Gore, despite who the people voted for... them's the ones.

Well it seems that researchers have discovered that several types of electronic voting machines have serious security vulnerabilities.

According to newswire reports, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen commissioned a study which pitched two hacker teams against a series of voting machines manufactured by Diebold, Hart and Sequoia.

The hackers won, apparently, after they found several security problems and were able to change the firmware of the machines, access the election database and even open up the machines without detection.

Both teams are said to have discovered `alarming security problems' in all the machines. You can read more about their potentially momentous findings here...
