Zoom-bombing: Prank or Terrorism?

Due to the global lockdown as a result of the coronavirus, a lot of video conferencing apps have experienced a major surge in their number of users.

One of these apps is Zoom whose video conferencing service has ballooned from 10 million users to 300 million.

However, with this surge also comes high risks, one of which is malicious. Users have found ways to hijack other Zoom meetings, defacing their chats with porn and other provocative content, aka, Zoom-bombing.

This has forced companies and even schools to warn staff to desist from using the service. After numerous cases of embarrassing security breaches, Zoom has released a new update to tackle the madness and the company says the new update should allay these worries.

The update includes enhanced encryption and privacy controls to make meetings secure.
