There are reports there was another RCE that Zoom didn’t/wouldn’t fix. This is what Gatekeeper and the built-in anti-malware engine is suppose to do — remove malware. If you don’t want this feature, you can turn it off, but this is a sane default and a good thing.

Apple didn’t flex anything here, it removed malware from its users computers.


If "malware" is going to include any software with security bugs, then Gatekeeper should just rm -rf the whole drive.

Zoom was literally reinstalling itself after being uninstalled. It's basically the definition of malware.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
