Apple Takes Action Again To Remove More Zoom Related Vulnerabilities From Macs Everywhere

According to The Verge, Apple has  pushed a second silent security update to Macs via their XProtect functionality to address further vulnerabilities related to the Zoom video conferencing app for macOS which I reported on last week.

Much like the last silent security update that I covered, Apple removed software that was installed by RingCentral and Zhumu, two video conferencing apps that relied on technology from Zoom and were also found to have the same vulnerabilities that Zoom has. You might recall that I only mentioned one of them previously. So the existence of another white labeled version of the Zoom software is not surprising, but it is troubling as I have to wonder how many variants of this are out there. Thus it’s also not surprising that Apple told The Verge that it plans to fix the vulnerability for all of Zoom’s partner apps. Which means that you can expect more of these XProtect updates to come.
