[Tech Talk] Ding Dong: Your Amazon Ring For Android App Data is Sending Out All Kinds of Customer PII

Amazon Ring is causing bells to go off all over. No wonder why noted security expert, Bruce Schneier, wrote “Click Here to Kill Everybody” a book about survival in a hyperconnected world. Is IoT a train wreck waiting to spill its guts? Recently, Wyze cams leaked a ton of customer info. Bruce’s book.

Would you install an Amazon Ring in your home?

First, it was concern about police departments using the info, along with possible account security, inherent vulnerabilities, and concerns of employee snooping. Now the Electronic Frontier Foundation a champion of privacy reports that …“an investigation by EFF of the Ring doorbell app for Android found it to be packed with third-party trackers sending out a plethora of customers’ personally identifiable information (PII). Four main analytics and marketing companies were discovered to be receiving information such as the names, private IP addresses, mobile network carriers, persistent identifiers, and sensor data on the devices of paying customers.”

Great talk about security and endpoints by Bruce at Google.
“It is easier to attack at system than to defend it.”
