Jailing the Zoom Client

While there are many Open Source solutions for browser-based videoconferencing and online meetings, like BigBlueButton or Jitsi, I am still forced to use zoom in a lot of contexts.

But the zoom web client lacks a lot of functionality and generally does not work well in my experience.

On the other hand I absolutely distrust the zoom client. Just inspect the strings that appear in the binary of the launcher…

$ strings /opt/zoom/ZoomLauncher | grep grep
pacmd list-sinks |grep 'name:\|module:'

Yes, they are using a lot of shell commands in their compiled binaries. Firejail to the rescue!
