Hacking: Jeff Bezos' iPhoneX still hides mysteries

The case of Jeff Bezos' iPhoneX, possibly hacked after receiving a WhatsApp message sent by the Saudi prince Mohammed ben Salman, leaves many questions unanswered. Whether it is the reality of this intrusion or its origin.

Further analysis, requiring a jailbreak of this iPhone, would validate the suspicions of the security team hired by the boss of Amazon.

As it stands, FTI Consulting investigators, led by Anthony Ferrante, say they are fairly confident with the scenario that Jeff Bezos' iPhoneX was compromised using a WhatsApp video, sent as an attachment from an account used by Prince Mohammed ben Salmane (MBS).

This 17-page report can be read at Motherboard. It was finalized in November 2019 but its existence was not made public until last week, when the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights worried about the possible activities attributed to MBS, against Jeff Bezos and previous ones like the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on October 2, 2018 at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey.
