'Zoombombing' brings up questions of cybersecurity and safety for UNC students

The FBI issued a warning in March about the practice of "Zoombombings," where uninvited users hijack and disrupt teleconferences, often with offensive or racist images and language. UNC has not gone unaffected. Students in the Hussman School of Journalism and Media class MEJO 584: International Projects held a live premiere of their final project on April 29. Students say their Q&A session, hosted on Zoom, was interrupted by unidentified users — including a naked man — who screamed the n-word multiple times and that “no one f------ cares.”
