Half a million Zoom accounts found for sale

The details of more than 500,000 Zoom accounts have been found for sale on the dark web by security researchers, for less that one penny each.

The login details were compiled by hackers using a method called credential stuffing, where they take email addresses and passwords from previous data breaches and ‘stuff’ them into other services to see if they work. Anyone using the same password for multiple online services is at great risk from this kind of attack.

If you think you are at risk, or if you reuse passwords, you should immediately change your password for Zoom and anywhere else you have reused it.
