Security Warning – data and personal information

This was published on the BBC News this morning in what was the CEFAX News section.  It concerns a video linking service called ZOOM.

Zoom for those who do not know, is similar to Skype, it is a free service and is based in America. I don't know how serious this could be, but the warning I think is justified. The wording below is as it appeared on the Television.
