Now he's facing federal charges for sharing user information and disrupting video calls at the request of the Chinese government. Xingjiang Jin allegedly schemed to leak user data and squash video meetings discussing the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre earlier this year. With co-conspirators, he fabricated incriminating evidence against US-based hosts of these memorials.

He’s charged with conspiracy to commit interstate harassment and unlawful conspiracy to transfer a means of identification. According to Gizmodo, the Justice Department’s case races a fresh wave of concern about Zoom’s security. The company spent the summer months muzzling Zoombombings and dragging its feet on end-to-end encryption.
