Cisco plans to fix three vulnerabilities in the Webex video conferencing app that can allow attackers to sneak in and join Webex meetings as ghost users, invisible to other participants.

The vulnerabilities were discovered earlier this year by security researchers from IBM, who conducted a review of remote working tools the tech software giant was using internally during the coronavirus pandemic.

Researchers said the three bugs, when combined, would have allowed an attacker to:

  1. Join a Webex meeting as a ghost user, invisible to others on the participant list, but with full access to audio, video, chats, and screen sharing.
  2. Remain in a Webex meeting as a ghost audio user even after being expelled from it.
  3. Obtain information on meeting participants, such as full names, email addresses, and IP addresses. This information could also be obtained from the meeting room lobby, even before the attacker

Cisco rolls out fix for Webex flaws that let hackers eavesdrop on meetings

Promotional image for video-conferencing software.

Cisco is rolling out fixes for three vulnerabilities in its Webex video-conference software that made it possible for interlopers to eavesdrop on meetings as a “ghost,” meaning being able to view, listen, and more without being seen by the organizer or any of the attendees.

The vulnerabilities were discovered by IBM Research and the IBM’s Office of the CISO, which analyzed Webex because it’s the company’s primary tool for remote meetings. The discovery comes as work-from-home routines have driven a more than fivefold increase in the use of Webex between February and June. At its peak, Webex hosted up to 4 million meetings in a single day.

The vulnerabilities made it possible for an attacker to:

  • Join a meeting as a ghost, in most cases with full access to audio, video, chat, and screen-sharing capabilities
  • Maintain an audio feed as a ghost even after being expelled by the meeting leader
