Dutch security researchers Daan Keuper and Thijs Alkemade invaded the security of Zoom in the “Pwn2own” incident. They found 3 bugs, which together allowed them to create dangerous exploits. They can hack into any Zoom user’s computer without any problems.
The Zoom vulnerability allows them to remotely execute arbitrary code on the victim’s computer. In turn, the latter does not even require any interaction. What you are most likely to do is to infect information. Daan Keuper and Thijs Alkemade received a $200,000 bonus for detecting this vulnerability.
During the event, vulnerabilities in Microsoft Teams and Exchange were also discovered, and $200,000 was paid for this. In turn, other hackers also received a $100,000 bounty for the Safari bug. The “Pwn2own” competition is still ongoing, so we hope to find more vulnerabilities in applications and operating systems.
