Another Ring customer, John Baker Orange, claimed someone hacked his outdoor surveillance cameras and began taunting his kids as they played basketball. TMZ reports that Amazon has refused to take responsibility for their faulty firewall protection thus far. Not only that, but the plaintiffs allege the iconic marketplace retailer blamed them for getting hacked. Mr. Orange and the mother in Mississippi have joined by at least 6 other families in the class-action lawsuit against Amazon and Ring Inc.
