it is early to celebrate right?
Quote:The US Department of Justice has published a press release on Friday warning pranksters that "Zoom-bombing" could lead to fines or arrests on a variety of state or federal charges.

The DOJ's announcement comes after Zoom-bombing is becoming a favorite pastime for bored teenagers stuck in their homes due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantines.

As ZDNet reported this week, teenagers and students are using a variety of social networks -- such as Discord, Reddit, and Twitter -- to organize or request that pranksters raid Zoom meetings.

"You think Zoom bombing is funny? Let's see how funny it is after you get arrested," said Matthew Schneider, United States Attorney for Eastern Michigan.

Zoombombing, Zoom-bombing or Zoom raiding refers to the unwanted intrusion of an individual in a video conference call, causing disruption. It became popular in 2020, after the COVID-19 pandemic forced many people to stay at home, and videoconferencing was used on a large scale by businesses, schools, and social groups. The term derives from the name of the popular Zoom videoconferencing software, though the phenomenon can refer to any type of intrusion on a video conference.
