Zoom Vulnerabilty on MacOS

In July of 2019 the public was made aware of a security vulnerability in the popular video conferencing app, Zoom (used by MSU) on Macs. If the Zoom app is installed on a Mac, then any website can open a video-enabled call since the Zoom app installs a web server on Macs that accept requests other browsers wouldn't. Even if you uninstall the app, the web server still exists and can reinstall Zoom without your knowledge.
