Experts from cyber security company Cyble discovered this on April 1 and were able to purchase 530,000 accounts at a price of $ 0.002 each. According to the company report, some are even shared for free.

The hacked material includes the user's email address, password, personal meeting URL, and their host key, a six-digit pin linked to the owner's account. According to Cyble, some accounts belong to high-profile companies like Chase and Citibank.

The video conferencing company was recently forced to halt its developments for 90 days to fix cybersecurity bugs.
