We identified a vulnerability in Zoom Desktop Clients 5.15.0 (Windows/macOS), 5.15.1 (Windows), and certain other products (i.e., iOS, Android, Linux, Zoom Rooms, SDK) – primarily versions 5.15.0. Users on these versions will be prompted to update before they can join meetings and these versions will no longer be available for download.

The full list of affected products and versions can be found in our latest Zoom Security Bulletin.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We are dedicated to providing you with a secure and reliable service, and safeguarding the security of your data is of utmost importance to us.

Team Zoom

At this writing, less than 1% of VCU Zoom users should be affected, but if you’re among them, you’ll be prompted to update your software before you can launch or join a meeting. If you’re using a departmentally-owned device without admin privileges, you may need the assistance of your department’s desktop support team to perform an update. Alternatively, you can use the “Join from your browser” option.
