The Guardian: Bezos’s Cellphone Was Allegedly Hacked by Saudi Arabia

HeadlineJan 22, 2020

The Guardian reports Jeff Bezos’s cellphone was hacked by an infected video file sent by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The hacking reportedly occurred in 2018 and included large amounts of data extracted from Bezos’s phone only hours after he received the video sent by the Saudi crown prince. Jeff Bezos is the head of Amazon and the owner of The Washington Post, which reported extensively on the murder of its columnist Jamal Khashoggi. The CIA says Prince Mohammed ordered Khashoggi’s killing. The Saudi Embassy denies that the kingdom hacked Bezos’s phone.
