For those who didn't catch it on The Inquirer already, it sounds like not even the would-be presidents of the US can
afford decent security: http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=16939
"site shows signs of being vulnerable to SQL injection errors" and "packed with cross-site scripting errors"... Has
Donnie been doing overtime? :)
Most amusing comment given the still raging Win/Linux debate on this list: "Kerry has open source credentials - he is
using Apache running on Red Hat. Bush's OS of choice is none other than Vole's IIS 5.0 server."
Most worrying comment: both sites use visitor trackers (something I always feel is a sign that the site's owners feel
that invasion of privacy is less important than commercial success). Maybe one day we'll just do away with elections
and go by the Google PageRank of the candidates' websites?
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
