Storing an application with access to the camera and microphone in a hidden directory is a violation of trust.  To make matters worse, the hidden application kept running even after the Zoom session ended.

I share your concerns, especially after reading the confession below:

To Our Valued Customers:
Earlier this week, a security researcher published a blog highlighting concerns with aspects of the Zoom platform. In engaging this researcher over the past 90 days, we misjudged the situation and did not respond quickly enough — and that’s on us.  We take full ownership and we’ve learned a great deal. What I can tell you is that we take user security incredibly seriously and we are wholeheartedly committed to doing right by our users.

The ICANN blog said  Engineering and IT quality this as moderate and even invoke low risk.  May be we should heard more from them.
