<p>If you’ve ever downloaded the Zoom app to participate in a video conference, your Mac may be at risk—even if you’ve already deleted it. <a href="https://medium.com/@jonathan.leitschuh/zoom-zero-day-4-million-webcams-maybe-an-rce-just-get-them-to-visit-your-website-ac75c83f4ef5" rel="nofollow">In a Medium post[/url], security researcher Jonathan Leitschuh discovered a serious flaw that could allow a website to access your Mac’s camera without your knowledge or permission.</p><p>As Leitschuh explains, the vulnerability stems from Zoom’s quest for simplicity. As the service works, you can just send anyone a Zoom meeting link which will in turn automatically open the Zoom client installed on their machine.
