The version of Zoom Client for Meetings installed on the remote host is between 4.1.27507.0627 and 4.4.52595.0425. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ZSB-19003 advisory.

- A vulnerability in the Zoom macOS client could allow an attacker to download malicious software to a victim's device. The vulnerability is due to improper input validation and validation of downloaded software in the ZoomOpener helper application. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability to prompt a victim's device to download files on the attacker's behalf. A successful exploit is only possible if the victim previously uninstalled the Zoom Client. Zoom addressed this issue in the 4.4.52595.0425 client release.
