A subversive ad campaign for Aqua Teen Hunger Force caused the whole city of Boston to totally freak out. Magnetic light displays were mistaken for possible bombs. The displays included one of characters flicking you off. The governor was not happy. No word yet from Ignignot.

It seems like something new comes out every couple months about Diebold’s lack of security almost every week.  Most exploits are electronic; this one is physical. (more…)
