Zero-Click Zoom Bug Allows Code Execution Just by Sending a Message

Google has disclosed a nasty set of six bugs affecting Zoom chat that can be chained together for MitM and RCE attacks, no user interaction required.

A vulnerability chain discovered in Zoom’s chat functionality can be exploited to allow zero-click remote code execution (RCE), threat hunters have revealed.

Google’s Project Zero uncovered an attack path that would allow cyber adversaries to silently force a victim to connect to a man-in-the-middle (MitM) server — no user action needed. From there, attackers can intercept and modify client update requests and responses in order to send the victim a malicious update, which will automatically download and execute, thus allowing RCE.
