Hackers love targeting, Ring and email accounts.
Hackers publish thousands of the Ring on the camera, and details of the account in the dark web forums frequented by cyber-criminals, according to the report.
In some cases, the hackers are doing it just for fun, “in the hope that someone else would be a hack, Ring, users, hijacking their accounts and play pranks on, or get users back into their homes,” according to a report on ZDNet.

The company said it has taken “appropriate steps” to block out the bad actors from the well-known affected, Washer, accounts, and users have been accessed, adding that it was encouraging to Ring and customers to change their passwords and enable two-factor authentication.
A list has been published on hacker forums claimed to contain references to all of the 100,000 of a Ring of accounts. The Ring, told ZDNet that one of those 100,000 references, only 4,000 were in place for a valid Ring in the accounts.
