E-voting on hold

This was the verdict of the experts on the prototype SERVE electronic voting system the Pentagon built.

"Because the danger of successful, large-scale attacks is so great, we reluctantly recommend shutting down the development of SERVE immediately and not attempting anything like it in the future until both the Internet and the world's home computer infrastructure have been fundamentally redesigned, or some other unforeseen security breakthroughs appear,"

One suspects these experts were a touch annoyed not to have been asked in advance. You're also left wondering why Accenture (who built the thing) didn't realise this was the case sooner. Full story at the Register.
