Computer security experts warn against loopholes in Zoom app


HYDERABAD: The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) said it had found multiple vulnerabilities on the online meeting platform Zoom. These vulnerabilities could allow a remote user to bypass security restrictions, CERT-IN said.

The attackers could join Zoom meetings without being visible to other participants, obtain audio and video feeds and even disrupt the meetings, CERT-IN said and advised users to upgrade to the latest versions.

CERT-In rated the severity of vulnerabilities as medium, and said the software supporting the Zoom On-Premise meeting connector MMR version could be affected due to the vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities exist due to improper access control implementation, it said.


CERT-IN works under the Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and is the nodal agency to deal with cyber security threats like hacking and phishing.
