“Zoombombing” occurs when an uninvited party joins a Zoom session to cause disruption. Often this disruption takes the form of profanity, hate speech, or pornography. Sometimes the disruption includes threats. If you receive threats during a Zoom session, please notify the UC police by calling (805) 893-3446.
If you are the victim of Zoombombing, please report it by emailing the Security Operations Center (SOC) at email@example.com.
