Zoom Client Leaks Windows Login
« on: Yesterday at 03:13:19 PM »
Lectori Salutem,

The privacy dangers using a tool like Zoom. FBI warns users.

Read: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/zoom-client-leaks-windows-login-credentials-to-attackers/
The developers thereof even thought of a new definition to what E2E encryption means as they see it:

Certainly not a tool when you wanna keep information from others, again perfect tool when you wanna leak info to the world.

Nasa & SpaceX ban the use of zoom over security concerns.

All of a sudden they wanna work on these issues: https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2020/04/01/facts-around-zoom-encryption-for-meetings-webinars/  But can we trust them as they apologize? https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2020/04/01/a-message-to-our-users/

See it happen first to really believe it, every corporation online is out there to grab your data
an make a sell-out to the highest bidder.  :o
