Security vulnerabilities found in Dutch E-Voting machines

Ed Felten reports in his blog that a Dutch electronic voting system, which was analyzed by a group of Dutch researchers, has been found to have many similar vulnerabilities to the ones Felten and his students had discovered about a month ago, analyzing Diebold voting machines. It seems, though, that the Dutch machines were designed in a slightly more secure way, at least as far as simple vote record tampering techniques are concerned. If it's of any consolation, the Dutch security analysis also reports that the use of such machines in Ireland is currently on hold.
