The Nigerian Communications Commission’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (NCC-CSIRT) following recent discovery on the ZOOM platform has urged users of videotelephony platform, Zoom, to install the latest update of the software from its publisher’s official website

Prior to the latest update the Zoom platform was vulnerable to remote attackers

The advisory issued on Wednesday reported that the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) found several flaws in the Zoom product.

The videotelephony platform made its debut during the COVID-19 Pandemic for virtual meetings with more than 300 million daily users, the NCC-CSIRT said

 “A remote attacker could exploit the vulnerabilities to circumvent implemented security measures and cause a denial of service on the targeted machine.”

 “These vulnerabilities exist owing to incorrect access control implementation in Zoom On-Premises Meeting Connector MMR prior to version 4.8.20220815.130.

“A remote attacker could exploit these flaws to join a meeting they were not permitted to attend without being seen by the other attendees.

“They can also access audio and video feeds from meetings they were not permitted to attend, as well as interrupt other sessions.”

A successful attempt bypass implemented security limitations on the targeted system using these vulnerable spots on the software could lead to stolen information and other business-wise casualties.

The Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) is the telecom sector’s cyber security incidence centre set up by the NCC to focus on incidents in the telecom sector and as they may affect telecom consumers and citizens at large.

The CSIRT also works collaboratively with the Nigeria Computer Emergency Response Team (ngCERT), established by the Federal Government to reduce the volume of future computer risks incidents by preparing, protecting, and securing Nigerian cyberspace to forestall attacks, and problems or related events.
