Apple has released an automatic update of the macOS to remove the Web server Zoom

At the beginning of this week, it has been revealed a serious vulnerability with the app of video conferencing Zoom for macOS, with potential attackers can hijack the webcam of the users.

The vulnerability was particularly notable because the Zoom had a Web server installed hidden on your computer to allow automatic answer for incoming calls and that the Web server was not only the weakest point that could be exploited, but had not been removed after you uninstall the app. As a result, users that had previously deleted the Zoom may not be even aware of being vulnerable to this potential attack.

After initially defended the decision to install a Web server on your computer to work around the changes in Safari 12, which would have required users to click to accept the incoming calls, Zoom has subsequently released a patch to remove the Web server from users ' computers.

Apple has now released an automatic update for macOS that removes the web server.The update is distributed automatically, so users do not have to download it manually and install it.

Zoom has declared that it is “happy to have worked with Apple to test this update” and that should solve all the problems with the web server.

In a blog post, Zoom says that it will take further action this week-end so that new users who select the “Disable my video” automatically have the video turned off for all future calls.
