I'm *very* impressed with Zoom's engineering team, rolling out a new 
version to quash this vulnerability asap. I got prompted to install the 
new version this morning. Upgrading was painless. Not only is Zoom being 
super-responsive about this (and given the publicity lately it stands to 
reason that they would) but they're being upfront about the issues and 
backtracking and patching in public in real time. You don't often see 
companies with this size a customer base turn on a dime like this.
