Ring and Amazon allegedly ducked for cover when their surveillance devices got hacked, but some of their customers are now firing back … you can run, but you can’t hide.
Ring and Amazon, which owns the security system, are now at the wrong end of a class-action lawsuit, claiming the companies were negligent by not providing “robust” security to fend off hackers.
The named plaintiff — John Baker Orange — claims last July someone hacked into his outdoor security cameras and started commenting on his kids who were playing basketball … encouraging them to get closer to the camera.
Of course, there’s the now-infamous video of a hacker talking to a little girl in her bedroom … telling her he was Santa Claus.
HORRIFYING: A mom in Mississippi says someone hacked the Ring security camera in her 8-year-old daughter’s bedroom and started talking to the little girl. “I’m Santa Claus,” he said. “Don’t you want to be my best friend?” STORY: https://t.co/RZrQvBxbFSpic.twitter.com/x2Oo2g5W2S
