Diebold runs from N. Carolina rather than reveal it's back door vote tampering code

Diebold decided to cut and run apparently because it was afraid that the back door it created that allows tampering might be discovered.

As a Diebold insider confirmed in September.

The "Cyber Security Alert" from US-CERT was issued in late August of 2004 and is still available online via the US-CERT website. The alert warns that "A vulnerability exists due to an undocumented backdoor account, which could [sic: allow] a local or remote authenticated malicious user [sic: to] modify votes."
