Heller passed the information to the Oakland Tribune, prompting the Secretary of State revoked the certification for Diebold’s touch-screen voting machines in California.

Diebold made news earlier this year after hacker Ross Kinard successfully created a key for a Diebold voting machine from a photo of a key on Diebold’s Web site.
