A big security fail!

Post by Atlantic »

The European Union held a meeting of their defense ministers over Zoom. Obviously, this was a matter of high security, so such measures needed to be taken... https://twitter.com/danielverlaan/statu ... 7827551233

First of all, the login for the meeting - apparently for everybody - was "admin". That's...definitely not good, but at least they used a PIN of six digits to secure things.

Then the Belgian representative tweeted out a picture of the meeting taking place on his monitor. Which included the URL at the top...which in turn included five out of the six digits of the PIN. :wall:

We cannot repeat this enough: information security requires awareness!
