Zoom recently came under fire when it was exposed that some of Zoom’s security vulnerabilities enable hackers to gain access to a user’s microphone or webcam.

The Star previously reported that the company’s “end to end” encryption also was deemed insecure, potentially exposing users’ communications to Zoom employees.


The crisis doesn’t end there for Zoom and Zoom users are now freaking out after it was reported that over 500,000 Zoom accounts are on sale on the dark web for less than RM1 each.

Cyble, a third party cyber risk intelligence platform recently discovered a hacker selling stolen Zoom credentials at only USD0.20 (0.80 cents). According to Forbes, Cyble had purchased more than 530,000 on an underground hacking forum with claims that they will use the information to warn its customers of the potential breach.

The purchased accounts include essential details such as email address, password, meeting web address and host key. The host key is a six-digit pin that is assigned to a user who will be hosting a Zoom meeting.

The scariest detail of it all is that the host key allows a person to control a zoom meeting, starting a live stream and ending it for all participants, reported the Star regarding the latest update on the security breach.

Forbes highlighted that the biggest issue that’s allowing the hackers to take advantage is the reuse of passwords by some users. Password reuse shows a huge security issue that should be given focus by the general public.

Furthermore, criminal hackers file away old stand-by passwords in databases which allows them to easily hack any account with the same password.

According to the Star, you can check if your details have been leaked online due to a data breach at Have I Been Pwned or Cyble’s AmIBreached.
