From Steve Freeman:

Ari Feldman, Alex Halderman and Ed Felten of Princeton’s Center for IT Policy have released a paper and video that demonstrates a series of serious attacks against the DESI AccuVote-TS (used statewide in Maryland and Georgia). They were able to, with one-minute of physical access to this machine, inject “vote stealing” code that would completely erase all evidence of its presence after an election. They were also able to “infect” memory cards such that the malicious program could be distributed to a wide population of machines (given enough time).

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
