Amazon chief Jeff Bezos’s phone was likely hacked by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman through a message infected by spyware, according to a preliminary analysis released Wednesday. The forensic analysis by technical experts suggested that the Bezos iPhone was compromised by “tools” procured by a close associate of the Saudi de facto ruler.
The suggestion of the Saudi prince’s role in the hacking prompted calls for further investigation by UN human rights officials looking into the October 2018 killing of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and contributor to The Washington Post, which is owned by Bezos.
