How to Think About Network Security After COVID | #macos | #macsecurity | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker



Of the many cultural buzzwords coined during the COVID-19 pandemic, the term “Zoom bombing” may be the most memorable.

Early in 2020, celebrities like Kristen Bell and Conan O’Brien popularized the practice of surprising online videoconference attendees by joining their meetings unannounced. As charming as that may be, not all Zoom bombings are innocuous. Bad actors use these virtual break-ins to secretly snoop on corporations and organizations. They may also share inappropriate images and videos meant to disrupt the proceedings.

Like other computer and network hackers, Zoom bombers rely on human fallibility and poor judgment to gain access. The most common entrance is right through the front door, either because the host neglected to use safety protocols such as requiring a password, or because they to sequester attendees in a queue so they could be verified before being allowed into the meeting. Sophisticated hackers can mimic profiles of actual guests, making it harder for the host to kick them out of the call.

“The best way is to have at least one step of authorization, but two steps can ensure that there isn’t a breach or someone who is not authorized in the meeting,” said Steve Greenblatt, CTS, president and founder of Control Concepts. “A lot of these steps take time and effort, make conferences less convenient, or make more work for people, but they will result in a more secure outcome and allow hosts to avoid those types of embarrassments, as well as potential security breaches.”
