  • 0patch instrumental in fixing a 0day with Zoom running on Windows 7

    Details are sparse, but it appears that the folks at 0patch were told of a significant bug in Zoom, the online conferencing app that’s become wildly popular. They notified Zoom of the hole, which only affects Windows 7, then developed and distributed their own “micropatch” fix.

    Zoom released a patch on Friday.

    Remarkably well done, all around.
