HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF IN ZOOM MEETINGS
People REALLY need to take responsibility for their OWN security.
Zoom, the video conferencing claims to implement end-to-end encryption, widely understood as the most private form of internet communication, protecting conversations from all outside parties. In fact, Zoom is using its own definition of the term, one that lets Zoom itself access unencrypted video and audio from meetings.

How to prevent ZoomBombing from your Zoom video conference

It seems lately not an hour goes by without news of another ZoomBombing happening, just as I was preparing this story comes this headline from Vermont Senate committee Zoom hearing derailed by porn hacker
A Vermont Senate Committee on Agriculture Zoom hearing, which was being live-streamed on Youtube, was interrupted by a hacker Thursday who screen shared pornographic videos before reaching into his pants.
The sudden outburst came as the committee had been in the midst of discussing school lunch access and how farms were faring during the COVID-19 crisis.
‘Zoom-bombing’: FBI warns some teleconferences, online classrooms vulnerable to hacker
Last week, a high school in Massachusetts reported that someone dialed into the classroom while a teacher was conducting an online class, the FBI said. The individual shouted profanities before leaving the teacher’s home address.
A similar incident played out another school in Massachusetts this month: an individual could be seen on a conference call displaying swastika tattoos.
A spokesperson for Zoom told Fox News that the company has taken the security of its meetings seriously and was “deeply upset to hear about the incidents involving this type of attack.”
When using Zoom for online classrooms, teachers are advised to making meetings private and require a password or use the waiting room feature to control the admittance of additional people.
Links to a teleconference or classroom should be sent directly to individual participants and never be publicly available on a social media post.
Lastly, those managing a conference in Zoom should change the screen sharing option to “Host Only.”

Zoom needs to clean up its privacy act

As quarantined millions gather virtually on conferencing platforms, the best of those, Zoom, is doing very well. Hats off.
… Zoom does use certain standard advertising tools which require Personal Data…
What they mean by that is adtech. What they’re also saying here is that Zoom is in the advertising business, and in the worst end of it: the one that lives off harvested personal data. What makes this extra creepy is that Zoom is in a position to gather plenty of personal data, some of it very intimate (for example with a shrink talking to a patient) without anyone in the conversation knowing about it. (Unless, of course, they see an ad somewhere that looks like it was informed by a private conversation on Zoom.)
