This article from Hacker News highlights a security issue with Zoom’s videoconferencing software for Macs. The Zoom software installs a vulnerable web server that communicates in an unencrypted manner; and even if you remove the software or install Zoom’s update update, the issue remains because the uninstall does not remove the web server!

Fortunately, Apple has release an operating system patch that turns off the service. You will want to install this update.

If you are a managed services customer of ours and we manage your Mac workstations, rest assured that the update has been tested, verified stable, and installed.

If you have not used Zoom in the past, you may wish to use the cloud based interface, rather than installing the software on your computer.
