Over the past few weeks, Zoom's use has exploded since it became the video conferencing platform of choice in today's COVID-19 world. (My own university, Harvard, uses it for all of its classes.

My goal here is to summarize all of the problems and talk about solutions and workarounds.
A nice collection of the stories covering Zoom's myriad security and privacy problems.
