Who Knew Brit Awards Voting Was So Easy To Hack?

By Sam Wolfson

Posted on 14 Jan 11


After the Brits nominations were announced last night, I went on the Brits website to vote for best British Single. I was expecting a barren choice between Scouting For Girls and Olly Murs. Instead the list was avante-garde electronica from Matthew Dear and Aphex Twin and blog house tracks from Fake Blood and Boy 8 Bit.

It was the same on the voting between Best International Act, which featured a choice between Sander Van Doorn and Reboot. It was back to normal by this morning but if the website is that easy to break into, how easy would it be to rig the vote?
