Good. I still have one kid at home. He first was doing zoom, then the school district said no zoom, and the teachers had to scramble to make their lessons into videos to post. I hope they go back to using zoom...
With so many working from home, schools with kids learning from home and many other things going on and using ZOOM - I just want to know if they are staying on top of their security and privacy issues.
NOTHING STRANGE, OR NEW. SAME OLD STORY IDENTIFIED WITH THE DIGITAL WORLD. EXCEPT I DO NOT GET YOUR POINT.
The below, a cull from same page and link you cited. From the last paragraph.
"Zoom privacy and security issues
Zoom's online collaboration platform has gone through its own issues as of late, with the developers having to patch a vulnerability in January that could have made it possible for a threat actor to potentially identify and join active and unprotected Zoom meetings.
A few days ago, Zoom also announced that it had decided to remove the Facebook SDK (Software Development Kit) from the Zoom iOS application after it was reported by Motherboard that it collected and sent device information to Facebook's servers.
"The information collected by the Facebook SDK did not include information and activities related to meetings such as attendees, names, notes, etc., but rather included information about devices such as the mobile OS type and version, the device time zone, device OS, device model and carrier, screen size, processor cores, and disk space," Zoom said.
Last year, Zoom also had to deal with another security vulnerability (1, 2) that allowed hackers to remotely execute code on Macs where the application was uninstalled via a maliciously crafted launch URL.
A different security flaw (1, 2, 3) also patched last year would have allowed remote attackers to force Windows, Linux, and macOS users to join video calls with their video cameras forcibly activated.
MEANING THIS IS A USUAL OCCURRENCE WITH ON-LINE AND INTERNET TRANSACTIONS. IT IS AN ON-RUNNING BATTLE. INTERESTINGLY, ZOOM RECOGNIZED THE ISSUE.
There would always be RATS and RODENTS in all aspects of life. Most families have them. Some would always take advantage of others, including systems. Its is a WWW-Wild Wild World.
I wish not to be misinterpreted. I have not implied that it is a proper practice., Rather not new in this clime.
