Diebold Quietly Patches Security Flaw in Vote Counting Software | Threat Level | Wired.com:

Premier Election Solutions, formerly Diebold, has patched a serious security weakness in its election tabulation software used in the majority of states, according to a lab that tested the new version and a federal commission that certified it.

The flaw in the tabulation software was discovered by Wired.com earlier this year, and involved the program’s auditing logs. The logs failed to record significant events occurring on a computer running the software, including the act of someone deleting votes during or after an election. The logs also failed to record who performed an action on the system, and listed some events with the wrong date and timestamps.

A new version of the software does record such events, and includes other security safeguards that would prevent the system from operating if the event log were somehow shut down, according to iBeta Quality Assurance, the Colorado testing lab that examined the software for the federal government.

IBeta’s report on the Premier system (.pdf) and testing plan offer an interesting and rare look at the testing and certification procedures for voting systems, which until recently were closely guarded secrets.

  32. 메이저 토토사이트 선택 이제 어려워하지 않아도 됩니다.
    안전놀이터를 찾는 것이 날이 갈수록 어려워지고 있습니다. 수도 없이 많은 베팅 업체들이 생겨나고 있기 때문입니다. 해외의 유명 스포츠베팅 사이트인 피나클,BET365,스보벳 등은 합법적인 운영체로 먹튀에 대한 제재가 없지만 한국에서 즐길 수 있는 스포츠베팅은 이러한 곳을 이용하기가 쉽지 않기 때문에 베트맨토토와 같은 공식 스포츠베팅 업체를 이용하지 않고 대부분 사설업체를 이용하고 있습니다. 그 이유는 배당이 너무 낮기 때문입니다. 또한 이벤트도 사설업체에 비해서 적은 것이 현실입니다. 하지만 토토시그널에서는 검증에 심혈을 기울이며 단 한번의 먹튀이력이 있는 업체는 추천하지 않고 있습니다. 이제 토토시그널에서 안전한 스포츠토토를 이용하세요 안전놀이터
