Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Blah3: Real Live Computer Geeks Look At Diebold.

Stranger at
PoliticsLet's just say we should all be very, very worried about these machines.
Analysis of the machine, in light of real election procedures, shows that it is vulnerable to extremely serious attacks. For example, an attacker who gets physical access to a machine or its removable memory card for as little as one minute could install malicious code; malicious code on a machine could steal votes undetectably, modifying all records, logs, and counters to be consistent with the fraudulent vote count it creates. An attacker could also create malicious code that spreads automatically and silently from machine to machine during normal election activities — a voting-machine virus. We have constructed working demonstrations of these attacks in our lab. Mitigating these threats will require changes to the voting machine's hardware and software and the adoption of more rigorous election procedures.

Word has it that Diebold is, not surprisingly, very upset about this report and is trying to get Princeton to take it off their site. That's the reason that we're offering the full report as a .pdf download here, and we urge other bloggers to grab it and mirror it on their blogs and pass it on.

Diebold is trying to disappear this report. We should put it up on as many sites as we can - they can't come after all of us.

And watch the video on the Princeton site - see how Benedict Arnold defeats George Washington.
