Just when you thought news about Zoom, the now massively popular video conferencing app, couldn’t get worse, it does. At least this time, it’s not the fault of the company itself but rather crafty cybercriminals.
Abnormal Security reports that there is a new wave of Zoom phishing attacks impacting around 50,000 email inboxes so far. The phony emails look like legitimate invitations to join a meeting with regard to the recipient’s supposed termination. The invitation link directs victims to a phishing page where the user is asked for their log-in credentials. Any information entered then gets sent directly to the attacker.
