Workspaces across the world have taken to video conferences like Zoom as their primary means of communication for work to keep moving forward amidst the pandemic. However, as helpful as Zoom is, the video conference tools pose a risk of strangers finding their way to your Zoom meetings without your invitation, this process is called Zoom bombing.
A virtual meeting that was hosted as a business roadshow by the Free State MEC for small business development, tourism, and environmental affairs Makalo Mohale was hijacked by explicit adult content from an unknown participant on Tuesday.
Just 15 minutes into the session an unknown person started streaming adult content much to the amusement of the participants in the meeting. Makalo Mohale had to immediately call off the meeting to avoid further bombing. The meeting was then continued on Facebook as the visibly shocked Makalo Mohale profusely apologise to the people for what he called "hacking" of our meeting.
