Researcher Demonstrates Several Zoom Vulnerabilities at DEF CON 28
Security researcher Mazin Ahmed demonstrated multiple serious vulnerabilities in the popular Zoom app, two of which impact Linux users, at DEF CON 28.
Popular video conferencing app Zoom has addressed several security vulnerabilities, two of which affect its Linux client that could have allowed an attacker with access to a compromised system to read and exfiltrate Zoom user data—and even run stealthy malware as a sub-process of a trusted application.
According to cybersecurity researcher Mazin Ahmed, who presented his findings at DEF CON 2020 yesterday, the company also left a misconfigured development instance exposed that wasn't updated since September 2019, indicating the server could be susceptible to flaws that were left unpatched.
