Phishing attempt email! "Secure your Zoom account"


Just wanted to notify the Zoom community of an email I received, prompting me to download a "security app" to continue using Zoom


The email is fairly cleverly designed with Zoom header / logo / colours


From: Zoom Info Technical Support Team

Subject: Secure your Zoom account: Install our newest security and safety app

The link takes you to a site that is also branded with Zoom logo and colours, with an EXE download (ZoomInstaller.exe or something like that)


Almost had me fooled so I'm assuming anyone else who may not know how to check the "from email" (*********** disguised as Zoom Technical Support), or "reply-to email" (*********** again disguised as Zoom Technical Support), or be looking very closely may accidentally download and run this!
