Video Conferencing App Zoom Sued Over Illegal Disclosure of Personal Information
Remote conferencing services company Zoom is being sued by a user who claims that the service illegally provided users’ personal information to another party without first disclosing such an exchange.
Late last month, Vice News’ Motherboard reported that Zoom’s iOS app was sharing users’ data with social networking website Facebook - prompting the company to respond.
"We will be removing the Facebook SDK [software development kit] and reconfiguring the feature so that users will still be able to login with Facebook via their browser,” Zoom said in a March 27 statement to the outlet following the report.
“Users will need to update to the latest version of our application once it becomes available in order for these changes to take hold, and we encourage them to do so. We sincerely apologize for this oversight, and remain firmly committed to the protection of our users’ data,"
While the remote conferencing company has since removed the segment of the app’s code which provides the data to Facebook, one user was clearly not satisfied and filed a lawsuit against the company in a San Jose, California, federal court on Monday, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The court document observed by the outlet argues that Zoom’s “wholly inadequate program design and security measures have resulted, and will continue to result, in unauthorized disclosure of its users’ personal information.”
Robert Cullen, the Sacramento, California, resident who filed the suit, is looking to represent other users of the video conferencing service, according to Bloomberg. The court filing demands that Zoom pay punitive damages and other damages over its violation of California’s Consumer Privacy Act.
In addition to legal troubles, the video conferencing app has recently been hit with hackers trying to troll the service - which has seen a spike in use following the continued COVID-19 novel coronavirus-related stay-at-home orders and quarantines worldwide.
Sputnik reported Tuesday that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation had launched a probe after receiving “multiple reports of conferences being disrupted by pornographic and/or hate images and threatening language.” Additionally, New York Attorney General Letitia James issued a letter to Zoom “with a number of questions to ensure the company is taking appropriate steps to ensure users’ privacy and security,” according to a spokesman for James’ office.

Thousands of Prostitutes Are Left Homeless in Germany as Brothels Shut Down Amid Pandemic – Report
Prostitution is considered to be a legal activity in Germany, with many sex workers classified as self-employed. However, as the coronavirus pandemic has shut down many non-essential businesses in the country, including adult-entertainment establishments, some foreign prostitutes have found themselves in a difficult situation.

Thousands of foreign sex workers have been abandoned on the streets in Germany after the coronavirus pandemic prompted authorities to shut down brothels and other non-essential businesses across the country in order to contain the virus’ spread, Reuters reported citing data from the Association for Erotic and Sexual Services Providers.

Around 80% of the 100,000 to 200,000 prostitutes in Germany are foreigners from Bulgaria, Poland, Romania or Ukraine, the representative of the association Susanne Bleier Wilp said. Many of these workers did not manage to make it home in time before the borders shut down and were left homeless, with no income or place to stay.

"We're talking about 3-4% who are the most vulnerable in the industry. They came here with nothing hoping to earn some money. Now they are staying with friends or living on the street. A lucky few are staying in the brothels”, Wilp explained.

Sex workers are classified as self-employed in Germany, where prostitution has been legal for more than a decade, but few are aware of their rights. Even if they pay taxes and are theoretically entitled to unemployment benefits from the government’s fund set up to help freelancers during the health crisis, they still find the current situation catastrophic.

“The coronavirus has been a disaster for me”, a prostitute from Poland known to her clients as Nicole told Reuters. “I have had no income since mid-March and no place to sleep”.

Nicole is hoping to get unemployment benefits from the German government, if the Job Center accepts her tax returns.

So far, she was left homeless after the brothel where she was renting a room and accepting clients has been shut down.

Last month, the German government closed all non-essential businesses like cafes, restaurants, clubs and brothels in order to contain the spread of coronavirus. More than 84,000 people have been infected with the virus in Germany so far, according to data provided by Johns Hopkins University, and almost 22,500 people have already recovered from the illness.

Yemen’s Houthi Militia Accuse Saudi-Led Coalition of Weaponizing Coronavirus - Report

Yemen’s Houthi Militia Accuse Saudi-Led Coalition of Weaponizing Coronavirus - Report
Efforts to mediate the crisis in Yemen, which marked its fifth anniversary last week, have been complicated by repeated back-and-forth strikes by the Saudi-led military coalition and Yemen’s Houthi rebels.

Houthi Information Minister Dhaifullah Al-Shami has urged civilians not to use facemasks and any other medical equipment dropped from Saudi-coalition aircraft in recent days, claiming that they may be contaminated with the coronavirus, Almasirah, a Yemeni television channel has reported.

Al-Shami voiced his “surprise” at seeing coalition aircraft dropping facemasks in Sana’a and other provinces, given that “US-Saudi aggression had caused the worst humanitarian catastrophe” in his country. According to the minister, there were no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Yemen. Al-Shami urged media and activists to spread the word about the alleged danger posed by the air-dropped masks.

Other officials in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen have issued similar warnings in recent days, with official warnings not to make contact with the infected masks distributed by local councils.

Al-Shami accused the Saudi-led coalition of targeting a COVID-19 quarantine building in the village of al-Salif in al-Hudaydah governorate west of Sana’a. On Monday, Reuters reported that the coalition had hit targets in multiple towns in the coastal province, in addition to attacks targeting missile batteries, the presidential palace compound, airbase and military school near Sana’a airport. The Houthis reported that the latter attack killed 70 horses and wounded 30 others.

The Almasirah outlet compared the allegations of the use of COVID-19 contaminated masks to the British genocide of Native Americans in the 1760s using smallpox-contaminated blankets.

The coalition has yet to comment on the explosive Houthi allegations.

The United Nations has called for an immediate country-wide halt to hostilities in Yemen amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Houthis said they would welcome a ceasefire if it led to the easing of the crushing blockade of the territories under their control.

Yemen became mired in a foreign-backed civil conflict in 2015, several months after an uprising by the Houthis ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. After fleeing to Riyadh, Hadi asked Saudi Arabia to help restore him to power. On March 25, 2015, Saudi Arabia and a coalition of mostly Gulf allies began a campaign to try to dislodge the Houthis, counting on their vast technological superiority and economic resources. However, five years on, the Houthis continue to control large swathes of Yemen. The conflict has claimed the lives of over 100,000 people, and the UN has warned that 22 million people, or 75 percent of the country’s entire population, are in dire need of humanitarian aid.

Owing to its status as an isolated, war-torn country, the World Health Organization has yet to report any coronavirus cases in Yemen. At the same time, the WHO has warned that a COVID-19 outbreak in a war-torn country like Yemen, where medical infrastructure is limited or non-existent, would be catastrophic.
