Election hacking has made headlines for over a year now, and I doubt these headlines will go away soon. Especially when tech companies are continuously discovering and disclosing new evidence of election related hacking campaigns left and right.

Watch today’s Daily Byte video for a quick rundown of this new discovery, including some general advice to protect yourself from phishing attacks wherever they happen to come from.
Show note: I apologize the the handheld quality of today’s video. I am back in the studio tomorrow, so videos should return to normal quality.
