Two couples who allege that their Ring home security cameras were recently hacked filed a lawsuit seeking class action status against the Amazon-owned company, accusing it of negligence, breach of implied contract, and invasion of privacy, among other claims.
One couple, Ashley LeMay and Dylan Blakely, was at the center of an incident in December where hackers spied on and taunted their eight-year-old daughter after accessing an indoor camera they had installed.
The other couple named in the lawsuit, Todd Craig and Tania Amador, were allegedly harassed by hackers who accessed their doorbell camera and told them "I'm outside your front door" as well as threatened them with "termination" if they did not pay a ransom of 50 bitcoin, according to their attorneys.
