Saudi Arabia denies hacking Jeff Bezos’ phone


Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was reportedly hacked, but by whom?

An investigation conducted by FTI Consulting revealed that the tech tycoon was probably hacked in 2018 after receiving a malicious WhatsApp message, The Financial Times reported.

A digital forensic analysis found it “highly probable” that the number that texted Bezos originated from a chat account linked to Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, FT reported. Tuesday, Saudi Arabia denied it was responsible for the cyberattack and called for a formal government investigation.

“Recent media reports that suggest the Kingdom is behind a hacking of Mr. Jeff Bezos’ phone are absurd. We call for an investigation on these claims so that we can have all the facts out,” the Saudi Embassy in Washington tweeted.
