Hackers are getting smarter.
And now they’re going after Amazon.
They’re calling it “Amazon Hacker Simulator,” and they’ve already hacked Amazon accounts in at least five countries.
Here’s what you need to know about the hack, and how to protect yourself.
Amazon accounts, like all accounts, have security measures built in to protect them.
They can be hacked, they can be compromised, they are subject to data loss.
Amazon has been hacked before.
In 2016, hackers stole about $500 million from the company’s e-commerce platform, Amazon Prime.
In the years since, the company has invested heavily in security.
The company said last month that it was working with law enforcement to investigate the incident.
The Amazon account hacks were unusual.
Amazon says they were targeted by “three distinct cyberattacks,” and none of the attacks appeared to have been successful.
They said they’re still investigating the hacks.
This latest hack is different.
Amazon said the attackers were trying to hack into Amazon Echo devices that Amazon said had been infected with the Hacking Team botnet.
Hacking teams have been known to hack other Amazon devices.
The hacking team’s name is not clear.
Amazon hasn’t released a motive.
The attack on Amazon Echo device #2 is just the latest example of how hackers are trying to target Amazon and its millions of users.
We know that a hacker has tried to hack Amazon accounts several times before, but this is the first time it appears to be targeting a specific device.
This is the same hack that also compromised a third-party account linked to Amazon’s Echo speaker.
The hacker who is in custody is a hacker named “Lizard.”
Lizard was captured in the UK in December, after he stole an encrypted email message from Amazon Echo account holder David Levene.
The message said, “I am a CIA agent.”
It was sent to Lizard, who said he was trying to get Levenes access to his email and to his financial records.
Levens family said Lizard had told them that Lizard is a CIA operative, and they believe he is.
Amazon and Google said Lizard, a hacker in his 20s, had not accessed their devices.
But that didn’t stop the hacking team from trying.
They used a “spoofing attack” to send Lizard an encrypted message, saying it was from an account Lizard had created, saying Lizard is in possession of a private email address that he had used for months to communicate with people in the U.K. Lizard told the FBI that the messages were from his own personal account.
Lizard, according to the FBI, said he had sent the messages to the accounts of the people he hacked, but they had not responded.
Lizard is currently in custody in England, where he is wanted on suspicion of hacking.
He also allegedly stole more than $600,000 from a company called Amazon Labs, which is based in Austin, Texas.
The email account for Amazon Labs was hacked last year.
The hacked email was sent by Lizard to an Amazon employee, according the FBI.
Lizard has said he hacked Amazon in order to get access to documents and data stored in the Amazon Echo speaker that Levenses family has used for years.
The Echo is connected to Amazon devices through a USB cable.
Lizard said he would send an encrypted encrypted email to Levenese’s Amazon account to give it a chance to verify that he didn’t need the information.
Lizard also said that he would also send an email to his own Amazon account with the subject line, “This email has been sent to my own Amazon Account.”
He also said he’d send an “exploit kit” to Lelye’s account to be able to gain access to the data.
Lizard claimed to be in possession the information because Levense had sent him the data with the Amazon code in his email.
Levinese and his wife, Lauren Levenue, were also hacked last summer.
Lizard allegedly sent Levenseles emails that contained a fake Amazon account, which Lizard claimed had been used to send him malicious information and also send money to Levines bank account.
The FBI said Lizard used a fake email address, but Levensea told them it was the real Leveness email address.
Amazon’s cybersecurity team has said it’s working to help protect Amazon Echo users.
