Voting machine chess

[Floor] sent in this PDF [I've mirrored it here] describing how to get a game of chess running on a dutch voting machine. (Even better, it describes how to monitor who’s voting for what via RF emissions) They did a thorough job of hacking the daylights out of it and proving the insecurity on these machines. You can get some more details on the web site.

    wouldn’t floating ad’s be some kind of spyware on your computer?

    ive never had a floating ad here.

    @jj: Get Firefox.

  7. sPiTfIrE-| says:

    Yes, spyware. No ads here, on 3 different machines at 3 different internet connections.

    no floating ads in firefox on one machine and no ads at all on other with adblock plus.

    Floating ad here on Firefox.. It’s the same ad on the same site, so I’m going to say it’s an Ad.

    The image location for the ad: http://amch.questionmarket.com/static/tribal-150×200-9l-eng-nul.gif

    I also noticed that when the box disappeared on its own the right column ad box changed into some bad HTML. The source included multiple mentions of http://www.education-advancement.com/

    Kill zem! Kill zem all!
