Not too sure where to put this. My wife is a teacher and as such she has to "teach from home". Of course they are relying on WFH technology. This morning in their district wide meeting, a "ZOOM bomber" joined the meeting and proceeded to masturbate (yes with full view of his actions) in front of a very large audience of people without their consent of course.

I find this pretty disgusting, I really do, but when my wife and I saw this ( she called me from another room to witness it), I couldn't help but laugh. Technology versus nature I suppose?

Has anyone had the misfortune of this as well yet?

Lol funny
My wife and her friends have all been using Zoom for the past week but she has not mentioned anything like this yet.
I wonder how they can do that?

Did you video this? I am curious how this happened as each session should and can be made private with a code. Either they didn't set up a code or this was someone invited to the session...

Or whomever the host was is set to default settings...

Or it was posted on Reddit... they have a section to share Zoom session passwords.

I am pretty sure this is the case. Alot of teaching people types are pretty warped. Trust me, I have heard stories for 20 plus years.

It was being recorded, but I seriously doubt the school district will release it to the general public.

Literally anyone with Infosec knowledge or anyone that has actually deployed Zoom knows exactly what it is and what it isn't. The company I worked for had previously gone through an RFP where they were a possible solution and almost immediately it became clear that Zoom was lacking in many things.

Sadly this seems to have become the defacto choice for a lot of people so let the lulz begin apparently.

The relevant part from the article below for your post is "

‘Zoom bombing’ on the rise
On 30 March, the FBI announced it was investigating increased cases of video hijacking, also known as “Zoom-bombing”, in which hackers infiltrate video meetings, often shouting racial slurs or threats.

Zoom meetings can be accessed by a short number-based URL, which can easily be generated and guessed by hackers, a January report from the security firm Checkpoint found. Zoom has released guidelines in recent days about how to prevent unwanted guests from crashing video meetings and a spokesman told the Guardian it had also been working to educate its users on protections through blogposts and webinars."

Zoom CEO Eric Yuan has apologized for the videoconferencing service's many privacy and security issues, saying it was originally built to service businesses with dedicated IT departments, not millions of consumers.

Zoom has seen its usage explode since January as the coronavirus pandemic forces white-collar employees to work from home.

In a blog post published Wednesday, Yuan said usage had increased by 1,900%, with 200 million daily free and paying users in March, up from 10 million at the end of December.

But the increased usage has meant increased targeting by hackers and trolls and scrutiny from journalists.

Trolls have started "Zoom-bombing" meetings, dropping graphic content in video calls and even taunting people in Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Use Zoom every day and haven't had this happen as of yet not have I heard of it happening to anyone in Australia.

There's some pretty basic features to enable which will stop this from happening.

If it weren't all masturbation and swastikas it's be pretty funny.

Must be getting pretty bad, they were talking about this on a syndicated morning radio show this morning. I didn't even know what "Zoom" was.
Of course they were laughing about it being bombed with porn, during corporate meetings and such.

On a more serious note, some people just are not right in the dome.

All of my meetings are in Teams, or something extra secure (but not unbreakable). I only use Discord for "public" (non-secure) chatting and we don't look at each others faces while we are knocking down the imposter sheepsquatch (thank god!)
