FBI警告濫Zoom危機 FBI WARNS OF ‘ZOOM-BOMBING

美國聯邦調查局(FBI)警告,廣泛使用Zoom軟件潛在危險。現已有兩間學校使用Zoom網上授課被不速之客入侵。Zoom興起源於武漢肺炎期間大家被迫留家,除了多了人使用此軟件外,亦多了入侵事件。

The FBI has warned the public of the potential for “Zoom-bombing,” after two schools saw their online classes get hijacked on Zoom. Conferencing app Zoom has seen a massive increase in users since the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic has forced a large number of people to stay home and turn to video meetings for work, school or social interactions. Zoom-bombing, the practice of unwanted guests intruding on video meetings for malicious purposes, is also said to have significantly increased during the pandemic.

據FBI波士頓支部新聞稿,他們收到大量關於Zoom會議被淫穢資訊、威脅言論騷擾之事件。他們建議,個人在使用此類軟件時留意網絡保安。FBI表示,事件中麻省兩個網上課室成為目標,一個高中課堂中途有人爆粗,並高呼老師住址。另一單案件是在課堂中有黑客入侵,並展示其納粹卍字紋身。

The FBI’s Boston field office issued a press release Monday saying that the agency “has received multiple reports of conferences being disrupted by pornographic and/or hate images and threatening language.”
“As individuals continue the transition to online lessons and meetings, the FBI recommends exercising due diligence and caution in your cybersecurity efforts,” the press release says.
The agency said two different online classrooms in Massachusetts were targeted in recent incidents. A high school class was interrupted by an unidentified person who “yelled a profanity and then shouted the teacher’s home address in the middle of instruction.”
A second class was said to have been targeted by another unidentified individual who appeared on video while displaying their swastika tattoos.

Zoom與不少可疑網站連結,這些網站用公司名釣魚,引誘網友按入危險連結。FBI建議,大家使用私人會議室而非公眾會議室,並避免在社交媒體上展示會議室連結。

Zoom has also recently been linked to a number of “suspicious” websites that are said to use the company’s name in an attempt to trick people into clicking potentially dangerous links.
Steps that the FBI recommends taking to avoid Zoom-bombing include keeping video conferences private rather than public, along with refraining from openly posting links to the conferences on social media platforms like Twitter or Facebook.
