Amazon Alexa security bug allowed access to voice history

A flaw in Amazon’s Alexa smart home devices could have allowed hackers access personal information and conversation history, cyber-security researchers say.

Attackers could install or remove apps on a device without the owner knowing, Check Point Research reports.

The hack “required just one click on an Amazon link” purposely crafted by the attacker, it says.

The firm told Amazon about the flaw, which has now been fixed.
