Businesses and countries have placed restrictions on using Zoom

A London based bank decided to distance itself from Zoom after hackers exposed security flaws relating to Zoom.

This included inserting vulgar images into presentations or shouting racial insults to participants.

Unfortunately these “Zoom Bombings” have rattled users from around the world who are using this service to stay connected during lockdown.

Since March 2020, Zoom has an estimate of 200 million people using its system everyday.

Banks around the world are extremely worried about cyber security relating to customer information.

Germany and Taiwan, as well as Elon Musk’s SpaceX to New York City’s public school system has placed restrictions on Zoom.

In a statement, Zoom said many global customers including financial firms, telecommunications companies, universities and government agencies had performed “exhaustive security reviews” of its technology and chosen it as a service.

Eric Yaun, Zoom Founder, appointed former Facebook Inc Security Chief, Alex Stamos as an advisor on safety and privacy concerns to quell the immense backlash against Zoom’s alleged flaws.
