Zoom Vulnerability: Discovered & Fixed by Israeli Researchers

Israeli researchers from the company Check Point discovered and fixed a previously unknown program vulnerability that allowed cybercriminals to take advantage and phish users of the popular videoconferencing service Zoom, which has gained many users in light of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release from the company on Thursday.

Since the onset of the pandemic, Zoom has gone from 10 million average participants in December 2019 to 300 million by April 2020, serving as an important means for holding high-level government and business meetings, university and school classes and family gatherings, prompting cybercriminals to register more domains with the name "Zoom," which may trick people into disclosing personal information on these fake websites.

In January 2020, Check Point discovered a vulnerability that would allow hackers to potentially identify and join active meetings, making vulnerable business secrets and more, leading Zoom to close the access point. (JPost / VFI News)
