OR Zoom, a popular teleconferencing service, suspends all new feature updates for 90 days as security researchers discover too many security and privacy issues. So the company said it would take a break from adding new features to close the security gaps.
Last December, for example, the company had an average of 10 million daily active users, while it currently has around 200 million daily active users.
A few months ago the company was "caught" using code that allowed websites to launch your webcam without your consent. The company fixed this problem, but security researchers found more security and privacy issues.
The version of the application Zoom for Windows has a particularly nasty security vulnerability that allows malicious users to steal Windows credentials. As we also mentioned the application Zoom is not end to end encrypted, despite the fact that the marketing department states that it is. Of course, let's not forget that before that, the company was "caught" sends your data to Facebook, even if you do not use Facebook.
The company states in its blog that they are shocked by the influx of new users and that it designed the service Zoom mainly for business users. The special IT departments of course impose new security measures.
All this sounds encouraging, as long as it becomes a reality.
