The audio files were transmitted through a link, which was confirmed by Amazon, though it added that the incident was caused by a "human error".
Amazon sent recordings made by its Alexa virtual assistant to the wrong user-a man who reportedly had never used the product.

Perhaps they will establish themselves even more in the light of such revelations. The alarms, Spotify commands, and public transport inquiries included in the data revealed a lot about the victims' personal habits, their jobs, and their taste in music. In May, a couple in OR found that their Amazon Echo sent a conversation to the husband's employee.
Twitter users are reacting to this latest data breach with outrage and shock. "Then, the subsequent conversation was heard as a "send message" request".
