Zoom took months to repair a flaw that would allow hackers to take complete control of a computer | Business Insider

It took Zoom three months to fix and address a security issue that allowed a hacker to take control of a computer that was running Apple’s macOS. Numerous security researchers from Dropbox were ale to test and confirm the issue. However, Zoom fixed the issue months later and only after they had run their own tests, leaving users vulnerable for months following the discovery. The issue was fixed in July of 2019 and Zoom CEO Eric Yuan even acknowledged that the company had not acted fast enough to secure the flaw. “We misjudged the situation and did not respond quickly enough — and that’s on us,” he wrote in a blog post.
