As we recently reported in our blog, Zoom and other video conferencing services have soared in popularity, but their convenience can come at a steep cost to cybersecurity. Unfortunately, these services have been subject to a litany of cyber threats. Terms like “Zoom bombing” are now part of our vernacular as Zoom takes the most heat for cybersecurity weaknesses, but other services have faced privacy concerns of their own.
This reality was underscored this week when cybersecurity researchers discovered more than 2,300 Zoom credentials for sale on the Dark Web. In addition to potentially embarrassing drop-ins, this information could allow hackers to execute a number of cybercrimes, including phishing scams, that could cause real problems for Zoom users.
Ultimately, it’s a reminder that this new remote reality is fraught with cybersecurity concerns that companies need to address. Being aware of potential threats through ongoing Dark Web monitoring is one way to stay ahead of the game during this critical time.
