I must admit my heart sank a little as I read more about the hacking of Jeff Bezos' phone. Whilst I enjoy watching a politician (former) struggle in front of a camera as much as the next person I'm currently spoiled for choice at what Davos is offering up every day (Google - United States invented the wheel).
I'm not saying that it's not important that companies admit to being hacked and work hard to fix the problem, but what I'd really like to see is a focus on the bad actors that are not only driving this behavior, but those that are allowing it to continue without consequence. State sponsored attacks are virtually unstoppable by another state, let alone you or me and it is unnerving to feel powerless as nothing changes.
Security researchers have criticised Facebook's head of communications, Sir Nick Clegg, for his response to the hacking of Amazon chief Jeff Bezos. Mr Bezos' phone was hacked in May 2018 after he received a WhatsApp message loaded with malware. But in an interview with the BBC, Sir Nick said WhatsApp's encrypted messages could "not be hacked into". And he failed to acknowledge security flaws in the app that had let hackers compromise their target's smartphones. "Nobody tell Nick Clegg about how exploits work," joked cyber-security researcher Kevin Beaumont.
