2018 ain't done yet... Amazon sent Alexa recordings of man and girlfriend to stranger


What possible kind of 'human error'?

I'm confused, what possible kind of 'human error' could see the audio recordings of one Alexa, which I assume was working perfectly for the gentleman who owned it and therefore must have been integrated with his own account, delivered to a completely different account owner?

Occam's razor suggests to me:

1. Find Alexa ID(s) for requester from "account information" tool.

2. (Mis)type ID into "get recordings" tool.
