 Touch Screen Voting Security

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution talks about touch-screen voting security in Georgia.

"The researchers concluded the system is vulnerable to attacks that use software programs designed to discreetly activate themselves and change election results. Also, Rubin said, blank smart cards could be bought and programmed by someone able to decipher the necessary computer language to make "homebrew" voter access cards. The privacy of the voting booth would allow someone to sneak in a stack of the homebrew cards and vote multiple times, he said."
