Poll Fraud

Postby Al_fayyed on Mon May 27, 2002 9:14 pm

Well, with a certain level of determination and free time, one could create hundreds of false accounts and stuff the ballot box. This is somewhat prohibitive, however.

I haven't actually looked at the script that updates the poll votes, but as phpbb isn't written for the NSA, I think that there's a good chance that a program could be written to just send in thousands of spurious votes should one be inclined to A) know systems programmming and B) care enough about a poll in a webcomic forum.

And as we know, most crimes are crimes of opportunity.
