A Norwegian school left Zoom after a naked man "guessed" the link to the meeting – TechCrunch



A school in Norway stopped using Zoom, the popular video conferencing service, after a naked man apparently "guessed" the link to a video class.

According to the Norwegian state broadcaster NRK, the man exposed himself to several young children via the video call. According to the report, the theory assumes that the man guessed the meeting ID and joined the video call.

One expert quoted in the story said some are looking for links.

Security researcher TechCrunch said this last year, malicious users can access and listen to zoom video conferencing by going through various permutations of meeting IDs in large quantities. The researchers said the bug that was tested on both Zoom and Webex calls worked because many meetings were not passcode-protected.

Zoom later changed the settings, so that private rooms are password-protected by default.

Schools and workplaces on the other side The world is in favor of distance learning as the number of people infected with the coronavirus strain COVID-1

9 continues to increase. According to Johns Hopkins University, there are approximately 523,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide on Thursday. There are currently over 3,300 confirmed cases in Norway.

More than 80 percent of the world's population is said to be in a kind of blockade to limit the spread of the coronavirus and thus prevent the health systems from overflowing.

The ongoing global lockout has forced companies to keep their employees at home and has pushed Zoom to become the platform for video conferencing not only for remote workers, but also for leisure activities such as book clubs and happy hours.

Some found this out If zoom is not set up properly, this can lead to zoom bombing, in which trolls jump into public calls, hijack screens and display obscene pictures to unsuspecting guests.
