Problems in Storyland

Ben Keenan, one of the participants in the RTÉ Storyland competition, posted details of a security exploit to the voting system employed on the RTÉ web site.

Potentially, it allowed people to vote for a project as many times as they liked, and to skew the voting towards particular projects.


RTÉ has modified the voting system to allow for IP tracking, which has removed much of the potential to load the vote in any particular direction.
