Zoom raised to fame just overnight due the one reason people staying at home and since then the company has had problems over the sudden increase in surge of downloads and high server usage of the application.
They have faced serious backlash in recent times for the concerns over privacy and security concerns and this even went to such an extent that hackers can hijack the conference without the knowledge of the people in the chat room in order to collects private date, upon questioning the concerns the company said earlier that would bring in more updates regarding the concerns. Now Zoom is delivering on some the promises it made earlier.
It is to be noted that several companies including the likes of Google, SpaceX, NASA, Australian Military and also the entire government of Taiwan banned the usage of the app among its employees over privacy concerns and data leakages. This can lead back to last year where there was severe flaw in MacBook that the application would use the computer as server in order to store the data which was then sorted out with an update.
One of burning concerns is that the promise and the advertised AES-256-bit GCM encryption but it was rather AES-128-bit which is vulnerable for data leaks. The AES-256-bit is much secure and this is the major patch work in the current update. It seems they are delivering on the promise of better security for the users and not to mention even this might not have been foreseen by the official of Zoom with a little over 10 million users in December and all the way up to 200 million daily users in march and it not now where going down. It is the best time for them to alive. Stay Home, Stay Safe!
