“They never really thought about security and privacy when they created this platform,” said Dr. Richard Forno, who is a cyber security expert and teaches at the UMBC.

“If you and I were using zoom right now and our meeting ID was 1234, somebody can try 12345, 123456, 1234567, and keep trying to find ones that will let them in,” he said
