In an event that is becoming more and more common, a California church has filed a class-action lawsuit against Zoom after a recent bible study class was inundated with pornographic images depicting abuse upon minors.
Saint Paulus Lutheran Church, in San Francisco, CA decided to sue the video conferencing platform after they were the victims of a cyberattack during an online Bible study.
The attack occurred on the evening of May 6 when eight participants who were logged in, all seniors, allegedly “had their computer screens hijacked and their control buttons disabled while being forced to watch pornographic video footages” according to the complaint filed on behalf of the church, which disrupted and intruded into their Bible study.
The suit further alleges that “The footages were sick and sickening – portraying adults engaging in sex acts with each other and performing sex acts on infants and children, in addition to physically abusing them.”
This is not the first time that a church has been zoombombed with evil intent. We wrote previously how a Montana’s church’s online service was likewise invaded with child pornography in a similar manner.
According to the BBC ” The church has filed a proposed class-action lawsuit against the San Jose-based Zoom. It is seeking unspecified damages for claims of negligence, breach of implied contract, unjust enrichment and unfair business practices.”
