Cluelessness in Security

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Diebold!

“For there to be a problem here, you’re basically assuming a premise where you have some evil and nefarious election officials who would sneak in and introduce a piece of software,” [David Bear, a spokesman for Diebold Election Systems,] said. “I don’t believe these evil elections people exist.”

(Originally from here, if you can read it.)

Nope. Evil election officials don’t exist, and never have.

Diebold election machines are insecure and poorly designed. Why does anyone tolerate this?
