Zoom and Security

By May 4, 2020National News

Zoom has emerged as a very popular tool for online meetings, training and other communication activities during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, but there are risks associated with any such app…

  • Phishing ploys: messages inviting participants to click on malicious links to fake meetings, or uninvited guests sharing malicious links during a meeting.
  • Privacy risks: users including sensitive information in their Zoom profiles, which can be viewed by meeting participants.
  • Live recording: hosts allowing participants to record the session, or participants using mobile phones to record it surreptitiously.
  • ‘Zoom bombing’: unauthorised participants hijacking meetings, often because password access was not setup or meeting passwords were shared insecurely
