Pranksters targeted #ICANN with #Zoom pornography

ICANN Zoom meeting participants were “flashed” online during the first day of ICANN68 – an ongoing event that takes place entirely online.

Apparently, pornographic videos were on display by meeting participants that attempted to disrupt the conference, which was not password-protected.

ICANN referred to these pranksters as “trolls” and issued changes to their Zoom meeting process:

“The individuals responsible for these disruptions were removed from the sessions by the Meetings Technical Services team as quickly as possible.

To reduce these types of interruptions in the short term, some participant features were disabled, including the ability for participants to unmute their own microphones and rename themselves on the participant list. In other instances, chat between participants was also disabled.”

It is not clear what type of pornography was displayed during the ICANN68 Zoom meeting, but we can safely assume it didn’t feature any g-rated kissing on the cheeks!

Kudos to Kevin Murphy from DomainIncite who expressed his dismay at this horrifying violation of ICANN peace.
