Zoom security threat.
My company just sent out an email blast to every corner of the globe in the company (200k+ employees) to immediately cease using Zoom for video conferencing, as a major security breach issue had been discovered.

No word yet on what that is, but it was sent out as **URGENT**. If a big deal, it will filter out to other organizations pretty quick.

Honestly who cares at this point? What are they going to get out of the useless video conferences?

re: Zoom security threat.
Is this a new threat? I ran across an article yesterday about an old threat where they basically installed a web server on your computer that created a pretty big hole but they ended up taking that out of the program once it became public.

quote:

The camera hacking bug

Last year, security consultant Johnathan Leitschuch discovered that Zoom set up a local web server on a user’s Mac device that allowed Zoom to bypass security features in Safari 12. This web server was not mentioned in any of Zoom’s official documentation. It was used to bypass a pop-up window that Safari 12 would show before it turned on your device’s camera.

However, this remote web server was also not adequately secured. Pretty much any website could interact with it. The result was that Zoom allowed malicious websites to take over your Mac’s camera without ever alerting you.

This led Electronic Privacy Information Center to file an FTC complaint against Zoom, alleging that Zoom “intentionally designed its web conferencing service to bypass browser security settings and remotely enable a user’s web camera without the knowledge or consent of the user.”

While Zoom has since removed these remote web servers, its cavalier approach to getting user permission and its disregard for security and privacy concerns in the pursuit of convenience raise serious questions about trust.

Like a hacker is going to gain anything of importance from our Zoom meetings.

re: Zoom security threat.
The gist of what I read was:

When employees create personal meeting rooms, other people can secretly join and listen in...

Also know that meeting creators can track how much you are paying attention to the meeting by tracking activity on your computer and eye contact with screen

What does that have to do with a security threat on one software?
