Techlet here. Everyone says Zoom is painfully vulnerable, but I heard if you have a paid account you have options to make it more secure. Is it good enough? Would you trust it?
>>2749 Absolutely wouldn't, but some people are forced to use it by their job or school. You can still reduce the potential damage by 1) limiting what you do over zoom, in case of future leaks, and 2) running zoom in a virtual machine so that hackers don't have immediate access to your host. I have already heard of some zoom users having their OS taken control of as a remote desktop by hackers. They watch what you're doing and take control as soon as it seems you're away from keyboard.
Zoom is literal spyware, see >>724
>>2749 >Would you trust it? hell no bro, theyre logging everything
Never trust proprietary software you absolute mongoloid. Not proprietary operating systems, not proprietary web browsers, not proprietary communications software. And for all you gamer brainlets out there, no, you should not be trusting or even playing those proprietary videogames, either, they are almost certainly bundled with glowie spyware that monitors everything you do on your computer if you so much as run the game once. Even the firmware embedded in you device's microchips is not exempt. If it is proprietary, you can guarantee that that hardware is backdoored and the NSA is using it to spy on you.

>>2757 You don't have to act like I'm a retard. I only asked because fucking PSL apparently uses it. You fags love acting high and mighty about opsec but fact is the left has dogshit opsec. Part of getting people to listen to you is repeating tedious shit over and over, and clearly the techfags haven't been doing so if fucking PSL is using literal glowieware. A link to good software alternatives would be nice, but you would just say "you're only compensating for bad opsec". So do you have any resources about good opsec from a tech perspective instead of ranting about video games?
>>2757 >If it is proprietary, you can guarantee that that hardware is backdoored and the NSA is using it to spy on you. lol you have no threat modeling at all. nobody here is important enough to be hunted down by NSA via hardware backdoors. for most of people here it's enough to just avoid being flagged by the usual dragnet.
>>2782 >nobody here is important enough to be hunted down by NSA via hardware backdoors. Everyone here is important enough to be part of a broad-spectrum mass surveillance and insecurity complex. The point is not to target any one individual now while they're taking a shit on the toilet, it's to incubate vulnerabilities to be activated when the individual becomes a threat to the state. But using and promoting said insecure software through social coercion, you place everyone in this state of heightened vulnerability.
