,----[ Quote ]
| Artifex Software, of San Rafael, Calif., claims that PES systems infringe on
| its copyrighted Ghostscript PFD interpretation and printing software. Artifex
| claims PES is using Ghostscript in its electronic election systems even
| though Diebold and PES "have not been granted a license to modify, copy, or
| distribute any of Artifex's copyrighted works," Artifex claims in court
| papers filed late last month in U.S. District Court for Northern California.

Diebold Voting Machines Vulnerable to Virus Attack

,----[ Quote ]
| An analysis of Diebold's source code shows that a hacker with access to a
| single voting machine could use a virus to affect an election.
|
| [...]
|
| The delayed release of the source-code review meant that David Wagner, an
| associate professor of computer science at the University of California at
| Berkeley and an author of the report, was not able to present his findings at *
| a public hearing held on July 30 to discuss the results of the voting system
| review. *

| "Nineteen machines had 21 screen freezes or system crashes, producing a

| "Especially with this blue-screen problem, you don't know whether it's
| the printer drivers, you don't know whether it's Diebold's own code or
| whether it's Windows,"

| Problems found in an audit of Diebold tabulation records from an Ohio
| November 2006 election raise questions about whether the database got
| corrupted during the tabulation of election results...
|
| The database is built from Microsoft's Jet database engine. The
| engine, according to Microsoft, is vulnerable to corruption when a lot
| of concurrent activity is happening with the database, such as what
| occurs on an election night [and Microsoft advises againt using Jet in
| a complex environment]...
|
| The report mentions that election staff had trouble with the server
| crashing and freezing on election night....
|
| The report notes that with punch card machines election officials used
| to be able to determine definitively if all ballots had been counted
| in the results....
