Church sues Zoom after ‘hackers’ streamed porn in a Bible study class

More reports of hacks associated with the video conferencing app, Zoom, is ruining sessions.

The latest?

A Lutheran church in San Francisco California, is suing Zoom after one of its bible study classes was allegedly infiltrated by a hacker who bombarded the video call with porn.

The Saint Paulus Lutheran Church, one of the oldest churches in the city, held a bible study class on May 6, in which most of the attendees were senior citizens.

But according to details from a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the church, 42 minutes into the class, their computer screens were “hijacked” and “control buttons disabled” while pornographic video was streamed.

Zoom disputed the church’s claims that it did not immediately take action following the incident, admitting that the hacker was a “known serial offender” who had been reported “multiple times to the authorities.”

Why is the Zoom app so easy to hack? Only last week a similar report happened during a parliamentary session in South Africa; porn was streamed too and a male voice hurled insults at the House Speaker Thandi Modise, who was chairing the session.

The Department of Homeland Security and FBI had warned that the Zoom app remains vulnerable to foreign spies and calls hijack, which adds to mounting scrutiny of Zoom’s security and privacy amid a massive boom in its user base.
