FBI warns on Zoom conference security | FCW


The FBI is warning Zoom video-conferencing platform users to guard against “VTC hijacking” and “Zoom-bombing” by outsiders intent on making threats and offensive displays.

According to the FBI’s Boston Division, two Massachusetts high schools reported separate instances of individuals breaking into online classes in late March being conducted via Zoom teleconferencing software.

In one incident, said the FBI, an unidentified individual dialed into a videoconference class, yelled out a profanity and the teacher’s home address. In the other, a school reported an unidentified individual with swastika tattoos dialing into a Zoom videoconference class.
