This chapter presents the results of a forensic acquisition and analysis of an Amazon Fire TV Stick, a popular streaming media device. Although the primary functions of the Fire TV Stick are streaming videos and playing non-intensive video games, it is a reasonably powerful device that runs an Android operating system. This chapter explores the additional capabilities being developed for Fire TV Sticks in the hacker/enthusiast community and considers the implications that alterations to the devices could have with regard to digital forensics. An empirical assessment is conducted to identify the potential for misuse of Fire TV Sticks and to provide guidance to forensic investigators who analyze these devices.
