Read the report that concluded Saudi Arabia hacked Jeff Bezos’ phone

Today, The Guardian posted a big story reporting that Saudi Arabia hacked Jeff Bezos’ phone in May 2018 after he got a message from Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. A report released by the security forensics firm FTI Consulting concluded with “medium to high confidence” that held true.

If you wish to read the report yourself, you can do so right here, thanks to Vice, which got the report in its entirety specifically on Wednesday.

Some security experts don’t think that FTI went far enough with its analysis, as reported by CyberScoop Facebook’s former chief security officer Alex Stamos, for example, said that there was “no cigarette smoking weapon” in the report. Some scientists stated that FTI must have had the ability to evaluate the encrypted file that the crown prince sent out Bezos which supposedly hacked his phone. And one said he didn’t see evidence in the report to recommend that Bezos’ phone was hacked.

Today, the White Home also commented for the very first time on the situation:

The White House comments for the first time on the U.N. report tying the Saudi crown prince to the hack of Bezos’s phone. “Saudi Arabia is clearly a crucial ally,” Hogan Gidley states. “I do not have any more info than that. Obviously we take this scenario seriously.”

Right now, this is a story with a great deal of weaves, but I highly recommend reading my coworker Casey Newton’s analysis of the circumstance, where he provides the significant guidance to never open a WhatsApp message from the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.
