- Suspended by Zoom?
Sounds as if you're doing the best you can. My only suggestion
would be to disable the feature in the mean time so people don't
get the error message. That's a bad look.

Got this when I logged in:

Yes, I'm aware of this. At the end of last year, Zoom
did a security audit (via a 3rd party) of all websites
that had Zoom apps, including Groups.io. It came back with
upgraded a few, but one sticking point is that we use a
version of Jquery that has some insecure functions. We
don't use those functions, so it's not an issue for us.
But they won't unsuspend us until I upgrade the library
anyways. To upgrade Jquery would require a bunch of work,
because other libraries that we use don't work with the
latest, secure, version of Jquery. So I would need to find
replacements for them, and do the work to integrate them.
I thought that the existing Zoom integration would
continue to work for people during this, but I guess maybe
that's not the case.
I have been trying to decide how best to proceed. I'd
really like to upgrade the widget library we're using for
the website (currently an old version of Bootstrap). If I
do that, then the Jquery issue goes away, but it's also a
huge amount of work.
Library dependencies are the worst. I code against a 15 year old,
constantly evolving architecture at work that uses half a dozen or
so different languages, each with their own set of third party
libs and dependency trees and that's not even counting OS package
Which is a (perhaps overly geeky) way of saying I feel your pain.
P.S. I'm not a UI guy, so I don't have an informed opinion about
widget libraries. The last time I wrote a UI, it was in Tkinter ;)
and it was just a pop up window for an updater.
