Detailed overview of all the privacy and security concerns being exposed by mass use of the Zoom product. Many issues are standard concerns any tech startup will have to deal with, but perhaps the most damning is the fact that Zoom is NOT "end to end encrypted" as its marketing materials state. This is outright deception on Zoom's part.

An excellent investigative look into Zoom's recent privacy concerns. The accompanying video is also very good. Author Tom Warren did well not to over sensationalize the privacy concerns or the frequency of abuse. Great stuff!
