This notice is only relevant to Mac users of ZOOM web conferencing (instructors and students). ZOOM support recently notified us that the Mac version of the desktop app (not the Windows version) has an identified security vulnerability related to video. 

You can read about the issue at the link below, but an update to the app is available immediately that removes the vulnerability.

To install this update, simply open the app and you will be automatically prompted to upgrade or you can manually download the installer at https://zoom.us/download (choose the option: Zoom Client for Meetings).

Here is the post at the official ZOOM blog that details the issue and its resolution: https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2019/07/08/response-to-video-on-concern/
