Please be advised that there is a critical Zoom update that addresses the zero-day vulnerability for Mac users.  We recommend that all Zoom users update their Zoom software.  

The update/patch will:

Once the patch is deployed, Mac users will be prompted in the Zoom user interface (UI) to update their client. Once the update is complete, the local web server will be completely removed on that device.
