The voting machines described in the program are basic computers which can be reimaged before each use (election) to mitigate the kind of hack described in the program.
If a hacker were able to gain physical or remote access to the machine, which is very unlikely, it doesn't make a lot of difference because the computer will be erased and a fresh, clean image of the operating system and applications will be deployed before each election.
Even if the BIOS of the machine is compromised, the BIOS can also be flashed with a factory image, removing any modifications that have been made while the computer was in storage.
The clean image of the system software, applications, and BIOS, should be stored in a safe or other secure location.
Plus, most elections that I am aware of include a paper ballot which can be hand counted if there is a dispute about the vote count.
I've tired of these programs that incite fear in people that don't know any better. Cyber security companies do this all the time. They make you think that the world is going to end and the only way to save yourself is to buy their software.
As we saw on January 6th 2021, this kind of misleading information can create serious problems.
