MBTA admits ticket not secure - The Boston Globe

Nice to see that justice still occasionally prevails... 

The MBTA acknowledged in court yesterday that its CharlieTicket system is vulnerable to fraud, validating a key finding of three MIT students who drew attention to the security problems as part of a class project.

The admission came during a hearing at which a federal judge lifted a 10-day order barring the students from talking about their findings and denied the MBTA's request to keep them silent about the most sensitive parts of their research for five months.
