There have been remote exploits.

Ignore #5 which is a different Zoom. Apple was forced to create a special update to clean up
the mess after zoom was "uninstalled".

That said, it's quite possible that today's Zoom is OK on that score. The Sans News Bites folks
do not seem to be concerned.

I installed Zoom on my wife's iPad. I won't install it on my gear. Being pushed into acquiring
a somewhat isolated device to run Zoom would be annoying.
