Prison � Diebold voting machines hacked with $10 in parts

Prison � Diebold voting machines hacked with $10 in parts:

Anyone with about $10, physical access to a Diebold voting machine and rudimentary knowledge of electronics can remotely hack into the device, according to experts at the Vulnerability Assessment Team at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois.

A hacker could potentially change a person’s votes without them ever knowing about it.
