Problems in Storyland

17th March 2009 by Maura McHugh

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.

Update:

RT&Eacute 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.
