Great remarks Eagle328... time will tell if your assesment is true. I'm a little sceptical though. There are other Ring events hitting the news. One in Georgia, for example. Also, Ring has been called out for other security concerns in the past such as: FOR OWNERS OF AMAZON’S RING SECURITY CAMERAS, STRANGERS MAY HAVE BEEN WATCHING TOO https://theintercept.com/2019/01/10/amazon-ring-security-camera/ Agree with you 100% regarding MFA.

This very disturbing! A hacker dialogs with a Tennessee 8 year old girl in her room over a Ring camera. A second report of a hacker accesses a Ring camera in Atlanta. Think of what could have happened (or will come in the future) with the knowlege these criminals have by watching this family. Questions: What is Ring's response on today's report of a Ring camera being hacked into? What steps do we as Ring customers need to do to protect our family and kids from being threatened. Why did this happen and what is Ring doing to prevent hackers from accessing our cameras and/or accessing our video in the cloud? As consumers, we need better assurances that proper security investments where and are beign made in designing and maintaining these cameras. I'm guessing Ring cut manufacturing costs by not including enough storage to allow for the updating the kernel (Linux?). Ring needs to enable its devices for regularly scheduled kernel updates. Until this addressed, Ring and other IoT devices will continue to suffer these types of exploits. https://nypost.com/2019/12/12/creep-hacks-familys-ring-camera-tells-tennessee-girl-hes-santa-claus/
