School quits video calls after naked man 'guessed' the meeting link – TechCrunch:

A school in Norway has stopped using popular video conferencing service Whereby after a naked man apparently "guessed" the link to a video lesson.

According to Norwegian state broadcaster NRK, the man exposed himself in front of several young children over the video call. The theory, according to the report, is that the man guessed the meeting ID and joined the video call.

One expert quoted in the story said some are "looking" for links.

Last year security researchers told TechCrunch that malicious users could access and listen in to Zoom and Webex video meetings by cycling through different permutations of meeting IDs in bulk. The researchers said the flaw worked because many meetings were not protected by a passcode.

    I laughed really loudly upon reading TFS, probably bothered the neighbors. This shouldn't be so funny to me, but I'm just picturing a dirty, morbidly obese sack of shit whacking his gack, reclined in a chair, while children scream in a cacophony on the voice chat.

    This happened in Norway. The kids probably were disgusted (mostly because the man was probably ugly), but Europe isn't like America where people completely freak out when they see someone's genitals.
