Where did they get the Rat from?

The WebMonitor RAT is spread using legitimate but malicious installers; those bundled with malware don't come from official sources that include Zoom's download center, the Apple App Store, or Google Play.

Since the Zoom rep. posted that we should only download the installer from registered sources, where did they get the download from (was there a mention of the specific location), I was curious because this could have come from a legitimate site or their session could have been intercepted and someone sent information posing as Zoom.

Not sure, please advise.
