Zoombombing

As we all transition into working from home and holding meetings via Zoom and other video chat services, please make note of the following to help secure your information.

What is Zoombombing?

A new form of trolling in which hackers use Zoom’s screensharing feature to interrupt meetings and sessions.

Things to do from the host’s end to ensure it doesn’t happen:

  • Require a password when scheduling new meetings
  • Require a password for instant meetings
  • Require a password for Personal Meeting ID (PMI)
  • Disable desktop/screen share for users (Require attendees to ask permission to share their screen)
  • Disable “File Transfer” so there’s no digital virus sharing
  • Disable “Allow Removed Participants to Rejoin” so booted attendees can’t slip back in
