The proper security fixes come on April 5th I’m told. Today’s fixes were just a whole bunch of usability and feature fixes. But, even so, it ‘is’ very quick. I’m guessing their super happy people hooked onto them over the last two weeks. To the point that people everywhere are using Zoom as a verb in place of Skype. Almost to the same level as google!

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.
