Zoom admits calls got ‘mistakenly’ routed through China | Business Insider

Zoom and other video calling platforms have seen a huge jump in usage since the coronavirus has caused everyone to work from home. Now, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan has admitted that the company mistakenly routed calls through China that did not have any users in the country. Yuan noted that this happened after the company quickly erected more ways to increase server capacity due to the increased usage. Unfortunately, in the process certain geo-fencing procedures were not met and certain calls were left vulnerable to hacking and unwanted data sharing. Zoom has not announced how many users have been affected by the breaches.
