The passwords for nearly 4,000 Ring cameras were recently compromised in a massive leak. The leak exposed log-in credentials including e-mail addresses, names, and time zones. The incident could give intruders access to users’ private live video feeds.
A spokesman for Ring insists that the “leak” was not the company’s fault. “Our security team has investigated these incidents and we have no evidence of an unauthorized intrusion or compromise of Ring’s systems or network. It is not uncommon for bad actors to harvest data from other company’s data breaches and create lists like this so that other bad actors can attempt to gain access to other services.”
