If this proves to be true, it’ll be another example of Saudis crossing the line and this time against an American citizen. Interesting to see what DOJ and POTUS do about it... Any bets?— Michael W. Trott (@AuthorMWTrott) March 31, 2019
Saudis gained access to Amazon CEO Bezos' phone: Bezos' security https://t.co/0r5ivtretm
“Americans, you pay taxes but will your government protect you? Maybe not” - wish more discussion this morning about @thedailybeast story last night alleging Bezos hacked by Saudi regime & then smeared by an American company. WOW, bad sign & can go crazy https://t.co/HkdL1ESoJJ— Clint Watts (@selectedwisdom) March 31, 2019
🔥- every American please read, if correct Saudi regime hacked American, targeted US company with help Americans. USG confirm/answer about this NOW! True/False? Jeff Bezos’ Investigator Gavin de Becker Finds the Saudis Obtained Amazon Chief’s Private Data https://t.co/HkdL1ESoJJ— Clint Watts (@selectedwisdom) March 31, 2019
Bezos' investigators have concluded with high confidence that the Saudis had access to Bezos’ phone, and gained private information.— Agenthades (@Agenthades1) March 30, 2019
The brother angle always seemed way too convenient, especially for AMI after that disgusting magazine fluffing MBS.https://t.co/a1ocDE9WJt
Amazon’s security team is highly competent, and I expect Bezos is paranoid enough to not fall for the normal traps. Wouldn’t be crazy for a CEO to have a secret personal phone that isn’t managed/secured.— Alex Stamos (@alexstamos) March 31, 2019
Even professional mobile malware leaves traces, I would wait for real evidence before making any claims.— Alex Stamos (@alexstamos) March 31, 2019
That being said, the idea of Bezos going after NSO Group in court gives me a reason to get up in the morning.
Jeff Bezos’ private investigator says they’ve determined with high confidence that Saudi Arabia got access to Bezos’ phone. He cites my @AP story with @JeffHorwitz that used forensic evidence to show Saudi got advance copy of AMI’s pro-MBS magazine https://t.co/rDQm79lYNL— Josh Lederman (@JoshNBCNews) March 30, 2019
Jeff Bezos told his longtime security specialist to “spend whatever is needed” to find out who was involved in the National Enquirer's alleged sextortion attempt on his boss. The investigation is now complete, says Gavin De Becker, and Saudi Arabia's fingerprints are everywhere. https://t.co/VA5x6JJQqD— Kevin Poulsen (@kpoulsen) March 30, 2019
There isn’t enough in the story to go on, and several of the quotes are clearly from non-experts and can’t be parsed.— Alex Stamos (@alexstamos) March 31, 2019
For normal people, I would say 0-day is a paranoid fantasy and assume credential reuse or phishing. For MBS vs World’s Richest Man, anything is on the table. https://t.co/UWRTmqzYJg
This is fucking Feudal bullshit.— Quatrain Gleam (@QuatrainGleam) March 31, 2019
Billionaires and princes waging internecine personal warfare.
This is the Earl of Northumberland sending the Prince of Portugal to ruin the Duke of Lancaster bullshit right here. Plus National Enquirer. https://t.co/wtGzD53OMR
Earlier today, Michael Sanchez — brother of Bezos' GF — told Page Six that the Enquirer *approached him* about Bezos' racy texts, not the other way around. If true, that means the Enquirer found out about the affair from another source or method. https://t.co/uwQZC3pMXY— Noah Shachtman (@NoahShachtman) March 30, 2019
If Bezos cannot keep his phone safe, none of us can.— Emin Gün Sirer (@el33th4xor) March 31, 2019
Do not grant apps permission to view your pics, they can steal them.
Do not install utility apps.
Ask Google and Apple to support permissions where apps cannot steal data belonging to other apps.https://t.co/Au5Tcm2G4S
On Bezos's phone: the current speculation is that for such an attack to work, they probably involve a 0-day exploit+malware assuming iOS (by NSO or someone similar).— Sriram Krishnan (@sriramk) March 31, 2019
Curious to hear from the security folks here - what are other ways this could have happened?

"The National Enquirer’s parent company, AMI, (is) in league with a foreign nation that’s been actively trying to harm American citizens and companies, inc. the owner of the @washingtonpost. You know him as Jeff Bezos; I know him as my client of 22 years." https://t.co/DWtfahmK7d— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) April 1, 2019
Hey @Publix at what point do you feel any shame selling the @NatEnquirer in your stores?? We now find out played a roll in the #Khassoggi murder? Is the money really worth it. Everytime I see it at your stores I think less of YOU. https://t.co/7yT9lpmzIF #Bezos #ami #enquirer— Rob 🔂 (@Unpersuaded112) April 1, 2019
Report: In order to exact revenge on the WAPO for exposing their murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Saudi Arabia went after Bezos, compromising his phone.— Rachel "The Doc" Bitecofer 📈🔭🗿💪 (@RachelBitecofer) April 1, 2019
The texts were published by AMI (The National Enquirer)https://t.co/cum2cHKhw0
