Facepalm: Following intense pressure from the media, security community, and its users, video conferencing provider Zoom has issued an emergency patch to address a zero-day vulnerability that it previously considered "low-risk." .
Earlier this week, a US-based security researcher named Jonathan Leitschuh had publicly disclosed a major vulnerability in the Zoom video conferencing software for Apple's Mac computers which could make any website start a video-enabled call by hacking the webcam of the system.
Despite the mishandling of the incident, Zoom's share price has continued to rise throughout the week, sitting at $92.72 a share at the time of writing, up 2% on the day. An issue in the product's architecture involving a localhost web server means a third party could potentially join a videoconferencing call without permission.
If the Zoom client is still on your Mac, uninstall it by dragging the Zoom app from the Applications folder to the trash.
"Zoom worked with Apple to test this update, which requires no user interaction". The goal of the update is only to remove the local web server installed by the Zoom app.

Zoom independently confirmed the vulnerability.
Zoom developers explained that the local server needs to store information about settings.
While Zoom has now committed to releasing a patch for the vulnerability by July 11, the company has said that it has no plans to change the behaviour of running a phantom web server on users' computers, explicitly stating that it is "not a security concern".
Mr Leitschuh also said in his blog that when he first discovered the flaw, he contacted Zoom to let them know of it and warned that he'll take it to the public in 90 days if it's not resolved.
However, a malicious website can exploit the web server by sending it a request for a video feed. It seems that Zoom thinks that asking a user if they want to join a meeting is a "poor user experience".
