Researchers discover web conferencing snooping flaw

Earlier this week, researchers at Cequence Security blogged that they’d found a flaw that could allow hackers to snoop on video conferences.

The “Prying-Eye” vulnerability, affecting Cisco WebEx and Zoom video conferencing, exposes open meetings or calls that aren’t protected by passwords. Attackers could use an enumeration attack to gain access, using brute force to guess ID numbers.

Cisco and Zoom were alerted by Cequence back in July – both have since altered default security settings and issued advice to customers.
