Online Voting

We've just had a long weekend here in AU so being at work on a Tuesday morning is always a little bit depressing.  However today a little article in wired caught my attention and made me chuckle "Voting System pwned by Michigan Wolverines" (http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2010/10/dc-voting-system-hacked/) and in the Washington Post "Hacker infiltration ends D.C online voting trial" (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/debonis/2010/10/hacker_infiltration_ends_dc_on.html)

The crux of the story is that computer experts were asked to prod the vulnerbilities of an online voting system. They did and ......  well the two headlines say it all.
If you need a chuckle, have a read.
