Amazon's Alexa has been sending out unprompted "creepy" cackles.

The best-selling voice assistant has even let out a laugh when it was not "awake."

Another wrote, "Lying in bed about to fall asleep when Alexa on my Amazon Echo Dot lets out a very loud and creepy laugh... there’s a good chance I get murdered tonight." 

Amazon did acknowledge the laugh and says they are working on it, but never mentioned what prompted it.
