The Zoom issue

When I did a clean reinstall of Catalina I – obviously – had to reinstall the apps I used. Zoom was one. I noticed everything about it’s installation that is now being reported and I thought it strange. I uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times to make sure. I asked someone at work if they saw the same process – I forget who – and they did.
26 July last year I emailed product-security@apple.com and laid out what I had found.
17 August I got a reply saying they were looking into it.
I cannot have been the only person reporting it so it’s safe to assume that Apple knew all about Zoom was doing and as nothing changed Apple were totally cool with it too.
