Ques­tions linger over in­ves­ti­ga­tion into hack­ing

Antelope Valley Press - - BUSINESS -

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex­perts say there are many ques­tions still unan­swered from an in­ves­ti­ga­tion com­mis­sioned by Jeff Be­zos that con­cluded the bil­lion­aire’s phone was likely hacked af­ter re­ceiv­ing a video file with ma­li­cious spy­ware from the What­sApp ac­count of Saudi Ara­bia’s crown prince. Sev­eral cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex­perts say a closer look at the pri­vately com­mis­sioned re­port did not re­veal de­ci­sive ev­i­dence. For starters, the in­ves­ti­ga­tion does not say with cer­tainty that his phone was hacked, much less how it was com­pro­mised or what kind of mal­ware was used. A re­port on the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which was man­aged by FTI Con­sult­ing, was made pub­lic Wed­nes­day.
