For Owners of Amazon's Ring Security Cameras, Strangers May Have Been Watching🔒 theintercept.com
This article had two central themes for me.
First, Ring isn’t applying commercially reasonable protection to the video content their users are trusting them with. This data should be encrypted, and they should not be allowing anyone in the company access to the data.
Secondly, the ominous undertones of “Ukrainian” engineers in this seems like it’s trying to imply a lack of trust, or some implicit fear. I don’t expect the article would have the same tone if engineers in France or Belgium were looking at the video. It shouldn’t be any different.Posted on January 14, 2019 →
