Sadly, reports of malicious people seeking out publicly posted meeting links on social media and other online sites to join, disrupt, and terrorize attendees continues globally. UTK has had no recent incidents. To keep meetings safe, Zoom created an automated system that searches the public internet for Zoom meeting information and notifies Zoom account administrators when public Zoom links are discovered. When informed, OIT notifies the Zoom meeting owners.
Don’t post meeting links to public sites like Twitter, Facebook, and the like. Follow the basic Zoom meeting security guidelines found at https://oit.utk.edu/remote-it/
