Did anyone watch this show on the History channel? I just saw it, it was amazing. They will run the show again tomorrow at 11:00pm. The show is about Ron Harris, a programmer for the Nevada Gaming Control, he programmed the slot machines to hit jackpots on some combinations only he knew. And later on he created a program to predict the outcome of a keno game(similiar to lotto). He would take the previous numbers, input them in his program and the program would generate a possible winning outcome, and he did it.

You have to watch this show, its awsome. Here is a discription from the history channel website.

Anyone read about that Diebold programmer who wrote code to rig an election....

"Diebold Senior Vice-President Jeff Dean was convicted of planting back doors in his software and using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of 2 years."

or

"This was not theoretical or a "potential" vulnerability. Votes were hacked on a real system in a real location using the actual setup used on Election Day, Nov. 2, 2004."

or

"Bev Harris found that the password set by the Diebold tech on this real election file, used in the Nov. 2004 election was ... drum roll please ... the diabolically clever password: "diebold." (This took only two tries to guess.) "
