Protecting access to the evidence

Some students at Swarthmore College are standing up to Diebold (who I’ve talked about before):

The students are protesting efforts by Diebold to prevent them and other website owners from linking to some 15,000 internal company memos that reveal the company was aware of security flaws in its e-voting software for years but sold the faulty systems to states anyway. The memos were leaked to voting activists and journalists by a hacker who broke into an insecure Diebold FTP server in March.

Hey, why fix the problem when you can just try to cover it up? That seems to be Diebold’s philosophy.
