Zoom fixes video-on vulnerability

Following widespread media coverage on what was considered a “low-risk” vulnerability, Zoom has pushed out a patch to fix a zero-day vulnerability for Mac users who have the Zoom app installed.

It was reported that the vulnerability could allow hackers to access Mac webcams, forcing users to launch a video chat.

However, security researcher Jonathan Leitschuh, who discovered the flaw, said not all Macs were vulnerable.

Zoom has addressed the issue on its blog, and you can update the Zoom app from their download centre.

Software and app updates contain vital security updates to help protect your devices from cyber criminals.
