A major vulnerability in a video conferencing app for Apple Mac computers has been discovered by a security researcher, which if exploited could allow hackers to spy on people through their webcams.

Software engineer Jonathan Leitschuh uncovered the bug within the Zoom app, and warned users that simply uninstalling the app would not fix the issue.

In a Medium post detailing the security flaw, Mr Leitschuh estimated that more than 4 million webcams were at risk, together with 750,000 companies around the world.
