Saudi Hack of Bezos' Phone Shines Bright Light on Security Challenges

A digital forensic analysis conducted by business advisory firm FTI Consulting concludes with “medium to high confidence” that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ smartphone was hacked through a malicious file sent from the WhatsApp account of Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. The malware was in an MP4 file attached to a WhatsApp message. UN special rapporteurs released technical elements of the report. “It makes you wonder how many other U.S. citizens are being spied on,” said tech analyst Rob Enderle.
