A report commissioned by the Florida Department of State has found flaws in Diebold's e-voting software that could compromise the integrity of its optical scan and touch screen machines. Although Diebold corrected many flaws previously identified, significant vulnerabilities remain, found researchers at Florida State University's Security and Assurance in Information Technology Laboratory. A flaw in the optical scan software, for example, enables a hacker to introduce an unofficial memory card into an active terminal before the polls open.

MyKey Technology offered technology to Diebold a year 1/2 ago that would prevent this type of problem. Diebold blew them off.
