Zoom is a video conferencing service that has raised to prominence throughout the start of this year. However, due to various security and confidentiality concerns, the service has faced backlash. The situation does not seem to be improving for the California based company as thousands of users have had their Zoom accounts sold and traded on various Clearnet and Darknet forums.
Searchlight Security has identified one post on a hacking forum where on the 1st of April a user posted a configuration file  for the web based pen-testing suite OpenBullet. This configuration file was for the Zoom login service, allowing users to easily check thousands of known credentials gained from other websites. One user thanked the poster before hours later posting a file containing hundreds of credentials they claimed were to logins to Zoom accounts . These credentials also contained information such as the users full name, meeting ID and host Key which allows the user to take control of calls.
