Zoombombing Incident Update
April 21, 2020
Dear Campus Community,
UCI again experienced an incident of Zoombombing yesterday during a public lecture event. Zoombombing describes an individual or a group of individuals misusing Zoom features to interrupt a meeting or class, often with criminal, vulgar, or inappropriate images or chat messages.
These incidents are unacceptable at UCI. If you experience Zoombombing, please report it firstname.lastname@example.org. Yesterday's event was suspended immediately, and the recording was turned over to law enforcement for criminal investigation.
As COVID-19 pushes classes to remote learning environments, incidents of Zoombombing have occurred across the country. Usually, the perpetrators are seeking to spread hate and intimidate targeted communities.
