52. The 'Hursti Hack' of the Optical Scan machines

The Hursti Hack of the Diebold Optical Scan machines and the Diebold central tabulator was the first proven
hack of a county's live election system in America (in Leon County, Florida). It was performed using only a
memory card and it was broadcast nationally on HBO.
I believe that these optical scan machines probably still retain this dangerous attack vulnerability.


Does anyone know how many counties and states are still using the Diebold optical scan machines?


The UC Berkeley Report which reviewed the Diebold source code and confirmed the Hursti Hack is real
can be found here:
