COVID-19 pandemic has seen a rise in the number of people working remotely which has resulted in increased usage of Zoom and other teleconferencing apps. Hackers have bundled a version of the Zoom video-conferencing software alongside a backdoor. According to researchers from cybersecurity company TrendMicro, a new cyber-criminal campaign is tricking employees working from home into installing RevCode WebMonitor RAT.
Researchers also said the compromised software doesn’t come from Zoom’s own download center or any official app stores. The download comes from malicious third-party websites.
