“On April 1st, an actor in a popular dark web forum posted a link to a collection of 352 compromised Zoom accounts,” reported Yahoo Finance. The accounts were reportedly listed for hackers to troll rather than profit. Sixgill, a cybersecurity firm that reported the dark web posting, tweeted a screenshot of the dark web forum post about the compromised Zoom accounts.

“In a separate episode, a cybercriminal posted a stolen database housing some 2,300 Zoom account usernames and passwords, many of which belonged to banks, consultancy companies, educational facilities, healthcare providers, and software vendors. Some heisted account information included meeting IDs, names and host keys,” said Etay Maor, chief security officer for global threat intelligence firm at New York-based IntSights.
