Yesterday, we saw a wealth of reports highlighting that a number of Amazon Fire products have been hacked by cryptocurrency mining malware, designed to utilise the hardware processing power to authenticate transactions on the blockchain. Whilst this may not seem problematic, it can have adverse effects on your internet connection and energy bills. Moreover, it is a breach of privacy and confidentiality, nobody wants that do they.
The Amazon Fire products affected include Amazon Fire TV and the Amazon Fire Stick.
