Indeed. It seems that Zoom did some very bad things, the worst of which is to start up a web server on your mac, and leave it running even if you uninstalled the app! Shameful.
They have issued an update today, 7/10/19, (which you can get by selecting update in the zoom.us menu when you run the app). The claim is they no longer run a web server (which I believe is true). They also claim to have fixed the uninstall problem. But it is hard trust them any more.
Zoom is a great way to have a meeting though. Works much better, IMHO, than Skype for larger groups.
