What pains me about Zoom being such sleazeballs when it comes to both security and privacy is just how unnecessary it is. They have good fundamental tech! But as the skeletons keep falling out of the closet, it’s clear that the organization is fundamentally corrupt.
In case you weren’t caught up, here’s today’s story about them deceiving people into thinking it’s end-to-end encrypted when it’s not.
Here’s how they’re abusing the OSX installer to avoid need you to authorize the installation (a good malware trick).
Here’s another example from just last year where they created a security hole in OSX so bad Apple had to issue an operating system patch. Again, not merely by mistake, but out of malice to sidestep reasonable OS protections.…
And now that Zoom has taught everyone just to click on native installers that work like malware, surprise, surprise, real malware is piggybacking on those habits.…
And then there’s the questionable snitch feature they built to let bosses know which employees to reprimand for not paying attention to their boring presentations.
Just keeping this thread up to date with the latest, such that there's a coherent summary of the shenanigans and consequences:
Oh, and how would you like to get zoom bombed by some dude intent on playing porn during your meeting?…
Or have your camera or mic taken over by hackers because Zoom left the door open when they broke into the OSX install protections.
