Zoom: Over 500K Hacked Accounts Available on Hacker Forums

Zoom: According to information security company Cyble, currently, about five hundred thousand hacked user accounts of the Zoom service are available on hacker forums. Anyone can buy them at a very low price, or even completely free.

Cyble experts began to notice Zoom accounts on cybercriminal forums since April 1 of this year. Accounts were published free of charge in order to earn a reputation in the hacker community. Combinations of email addresses and passwords (including those belonging to employees of such large organizations as Chase, Citibank, etc.) were posted on websites for exchanging texts.

Seeing that the unknown put up the credentials of Zoom users for sale, Cyble experts decided to buy them and warn the affected users. In total, they purchased 530 thousand hacked accounts (this includes e-mail, password, meeting URL and the key of the meeting organizer), paying for each only $ 0.0020.

Recall that last week at the hacker forum were published free 2.3 thousand compromised user credentials Zoom. In addition, YouTube and Vimeo posted video recordings of users’ calls, including psychotherapy sessions, schoolwork with students, medical consultations, and corporate meetings.
