Amazon and Ring are facing a class-action lawsuit for allegedly not doing enough to secure their security surveillance systems against hacks.

Alabama resident John Orange, who filed the lawsuit, has claimed that a stranger compromised his Ring outdoor camera and spooked his kids, highlighting the inability of the company to prevent cyber attacks, Engadget notes. Meanwhile, Ring responded to Orange's claims as a result of a possible breach at a non-Ring service where someone reused info to sign into Ring accounts. It remains to be seen if the lawsuit achieves class action status and the companies are required to compensate victims.
