As you know, we are in the middle of a pandemic. This is a very unique situation, and one in which very few organizations or people were prepared for. As everyone quickly found out, this is different than a hurricane or earthquake in many ways. For one, COVID 19 can not be seen, and there is little information on how long it will last.
One of the ways schools and courts have adjusted is by using internet platforms that allow for video conferencing. This is a great way to relay information among others when it is not advisable or you can not meet face to face.
While Zoom is the preferred encrypted video conferencing platform for many, it should be noted the platform has some drawbacks. One, it appears to be prone to attacks by others that acquire the correct credentials to join in on a meeting. Apparently, hacking software has been developed that allows one to take control of a meeting by redirecting the audio and video to the hackers control.
It has also recently been reported on the news that Zoom has a flaw in its encryption, allowing others to be able to hear and see conversations among others. Hence, if you have sensitive information to convey to others, including legal consultations, you should probably avoid using Zoom to convey that information until Zoom can improve the security of its platform to be secure.
