Zhumu vulnerability and remediation

July 13, 2019 Leave a comment

As more security researchers look into the Zoom vulnerability issue, it now appears that Zhumu (Zoom’s affiliate for China) has a client for macOS with the same local webserver vulnerability as that previously discovered for Zoom’s and RingCentral’s clients for macOS.

For those wanting to manually remediate for all three clients, the following commands can be run:

pkill "ZoomOpener"; rm -rf ~/.zoomus; touch ~/.zoomus && chmod 000 ~/.zoomus;
pkill "RingCentralOpener"; rm -rf ~/.ringcentralopener; touch ~/.ringcentralopener && chmod 000 ~/.ringcentralopener;
pkill "ZhumuOpener"; rm -rf ~/.zhumuopener; touch ~/.zhumuopener && chmod 000 ~/.zhumuopener;

I’ve updated my fix_zoom_vulnerability script to also address the Zhumu client. For more details, please see below the jump.
