As a result of restrictions in mass gathering and imposition of social distancing to curtail the spread of COVID-19, there is an unprecedented adoption of telecommuting and video conferencing as innovative technological alternatives for remote work and office administration, colloquially referred to as teleworking, mobile working, home working or "work from home (WFH)". The combination of telecommuting and video conferencing comes with the benefits of reduced overhead, increased productivity and minimal risks of exposure to infectious diseases including the COVID-19 which is spread through human clusters. Unfortunately, the popularity of telecommuting and video conferencing applications has also opened up potential avenues for cyber-attacks and other hostile hacking incidents that target porous networks and unsafe systems and applications, thereby raising serious ethical, cyber security and privacy concerns. This paper examines a comprehensive overview of cyber security issues related to telecommuting and video conferencing applications including their vulnerabilities, threats, and impacts.
