If you've installed Mac Web Client, a malicious web site you visit can enable your camera without your permission. The author further alleges that ZOOM was informed of the bug and has been slow to correct it.

It wouldn't surprise me if there is some hype in the article, but it is my impression that this points to a legitimate flaw. I have not seen confirmation of this news elsewhere, though. Sorry to share the bad news.

Fool on!
Thanks, and best wishes,
