E-voting security firm hacked

The Associated Press reports (via Wired News) that the e-voting security firm VoteHere, of Bellevue, Washington, was hacked in October. A yet-unidentified individual gained illicit access to VoteHere's network and read internal documents and may have copied some files. Company executives reportedly blame the break-in on the recent spate of public attention paid to electronic voting. If nothing else, this episode highlights the tenuous security to which public elections might be entrusted. (Via beSpacific)
