The security of personal data of 200 million people who own gadgets is under threat

Hackers discovered and exploited a vulnerability in Amazon's virtual voice assistant, Alex.





As a result of hacking the system, the security of personal data of 200 million users of gadgets was threatened. This is reported by CheckPoint.

It is noted that hackers discovered a vulnerability in the skills component, which allows users to install additional components in the system developed by third-party companies.

To hack the gadget's system, the user just needs to click on the link sent by hackers.

As a result, we were able to get access to the history of voice commands, personal information of users, as well as technical data of the device from gadgets with a voice assistant.

Amazon said it has already fixed this vulnerability.

Earlier, we reported that we found a dangerous vulnerability in 4G voice communications.
