Democracy my ass...

ES&S isn't singled out in the report. The researchers, among them computer scientist Matt Blaze, examined source code and hardware of touch-screen and optical scan machines from two other vendors as well -- Premier (formerly known as Diebold) and Hart InterCivic. They found vulnerabilities in the various systems that would allow voters and pollworkers to place multiple votes on machines, to infect machines with a virus and to corrupt already cast votes.
Highly recommended.
