Hi, it's true that zoom is currently getting a lot of attention. It all started with the iOS application using Facebook SDK to provide login through Facebook and their TOS/privacy statement.
That triggered a lot of (security) researchers who are currently sitting at home like most people in western world with a lot of time. If upstream will address all problems this will become one of the best (free-)audited conference software available ;-) For this discussion please keep in mind that there are multiple versions for different platforms. Not every platform is affected by all reported problems. Regarding zoom and Gentoo: net-im/zoom doesn't require any special handling in Gentoo. Package is not even marked stable. We have a lot of vulnerable packages... If problems will get confirmed for the available Linux version and upstream won't provide a fix within ~12 months (depends on severity of reported vulnerabilities) we maybe decide to last-rite or apply a mask to force user awareness through forced unmask action in case they need that software. But again, this software isn't special and doesn't require further discussion from our P.O.V. -- Regards, Thomas Deutschmann / Gentoo Security Team fpr: C4DD 695F A713 8F24 2AA1 5638 5849 7EE5 1D5D 74A5
