Hackers hijack Zoom meeting on Milwaukee absentee ballots

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WISN) — Hackers hijacked a Zoom conference call Sunday afternoon held by the Milwaukee Board of Election Commissioners.

The call was scheduled to provide an update on guidelines related to last week’s primary election.

The commission planned to discuss late-arriving absentee ballots.

The hackers took control of the meeting and posted pornography and vulgar slurs.

Board of Elections Executive Director Neil Albrecht was unable to regain control of the meeting and ended it.

Participants needed a password to access the Zoom meeting.
