Parts of the German government have blocked the use of Zoom following concerns
around its privacy and security protection.
Officials at the German Foreign Ministry have had their use of Zoom restricted
following a government memo warning about the risks in using the software.
Amid the coronavirus-led lockdowns, Zoom and other teleconferencing apps have
experienced a spike in usage. However, the company has faced severe backlash
after reports surfaced of traffic being routed through China, Zoombombing, a
lack of proper security measures and other privacy-related issues.
According to the Handelsblatt newspaper, Zoom was already being widely used
across the ministry’s international partners, meaning it would be difficult
to ban its use completely, so employees could log on using private machines
for professional purposes if there was a crisis.
“Based on media reports and our own findings we have concluded that Zoom’s
software has critical weaknesses and serious security and data protection
problems,” the memo read.
The move comes hours after Taiwan’s government said it would avoid using Zoom
due to a number of security and privacy concerns, suggesting that alternative
applications from competitors like Microsoft and Google are safer.
As China doesn’t acknowledge Taiwan as an independent state, official data
being relayed through China is considered as a privacy threat for the nation.
A statement issued by the Taiwanese Department of Cyber Security states, “if
the organization must use non-domestically produced software for international
exchanges or some other special situation, many global and communication
giants—like Google and Microsoft—are offering such technology for free amid
the current pandemic.”
“Organizations should consider these options after evaluating any associated
data security risks,” it added.
Zoom, which saw its user base balloon to 200 million in March, had been
struggling to control the spike in usage. The company admitted that it had
mistakenly routed data through Chinese servers and has clarified that it has
stopped using the backup servers for non-Chinese customers.
Similarly, reports of Zoom calls not being end-to-end encrypted, hackers being
able to eavesdrop into calls, records of meetings available publicly on the
internet, and un-invited attendee’s able to hijack calls caused major
Elsewhere, various schools in the United States have also switched to Micro-
soft Teams for remote classes and banned Zoom immediately. Even Elon Musk’s
SpaceX has barred the usage of Zoom by its officials and Canada's electronic
surveillance agency also didn’t approve the platform for “any government
discussions that require secure communications.”
Last week, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan apologized for the incidents, and announced that
the company will stop working on new features to focus on securing the plat-
Zoom’s market value has been reduced by one-third since it registered a
record high in late March and its shares also experienced a drop by one per-
cent in pre-market trading on the Nasdaq.
還蠻奇妙的副標是 "follows Taiwan"，是台灣超前部署，還是民進黨又控制德國了嗎？
有人說你也沒辦法證明其他軟體比較安全，所以不該停用 Zoom，但是 Zoom 已經被公開
