Zoom backtracks on 'legitimate solution' that left Mac webcams vulnerable to highja
#1
Quote:Facepalm: Following intense pressure from the media, security community, and its users, video conferencing provider Zoom has issued an emergency patch to address a zero-day vulnerability that it previously considered “low-risk.”As you may recall, we reported on Tuesday that a security researcher had discovered that video conferencing app Zoom for macOS could be used to highjack a computer’s webcam somewhat easily. The vulnerability is facilitated by a local web server that Zoom installs on the device to make it possible to join meetings with one click.
However, a malicious website can exploit the web server by sending it a request for a video feed. Zoom was informed of the exploit but said that it did not plan to remove the feature because it was a “legitimate solution” that other service providers have used as well.
Only hours after media accounts began going live, Zoom surprisingly reversed its stance and pushed out an immediate patch to fix the security issue followed by an official statement.
