E-commerce: Amazon Recent Scandal. Does the company facing some technical problems or has simply been the victim of a hacking attack?

come the e-commerce giant exposes some customers sensitive information online?

this may be true, Amazon the e-commerce giant. Exposes millions of customers names, email and eventually credit information online by inadvertence this week. A spokesperson from e-commerce platform said Wednesday it had inadvertently disclosed the names and email addresses of some customers. The apparently is related to what the e-commerce giant described as a minor technical error.

However, Amazon did not even bother to elaborate on what is the nature of this error. The company just affirmed fixed the issue for the time being. Amazon also confirmed the incident not a breach of its or any of its systems. “We have fixed the issue in which you may impacted, informed the customer’s . ”  An Amazon spokesperson said in a very brief statement.

Therefore, Amazon affirmed its customer had emailed out the company customers base. The is simple. Amazon wants all shoppers to be very cautious. Especially during the Black Friday shopping on its e-commerce platform.

Despite, this unusual extra caution of activities from Amazon it’s really strange. For many reasons because primo: it is unclear many were affected. secondo: Amazon did not answer any questions about what the technical error was. Either for long these pieces of information exposed in public.

Finally, who may have had access to the names, and probably credit cards information of its customers.  does the public know about this incident?

The is not that Amazon wants to be transparent with the public. Instead, because some customers shared screenshots Wednesday on of the email that Amazon sent them. A kind of very abstract message with these words:

“We’re contacting you to let you know that our inadvertently disclosed your email to a technical error. This is not a result of anything you have done, and there is no need for you to change your password or take any other action.”  to the screenshots messages that published and still circulating on scrolling feed.

This scenario happened after recently eBay accused Amazon. The accusation is about the e-commerce giant fraudulently infiltrating an internal messaging system. Also called M2M to take its high-value buyer’s clients.  to what is circulating on pro-hackers websites on the Internet. Amazon probably the victim of a breach.

big names in the online hacking community. Claimed the vindictive action against Amazon.  to what we can read on hackers platforms they said: “ This is a retaliation to what Amazon did to us by stealing they high-value buyers clients on eBay.”

Does it’s a new kind of conflict between Amazon and some third interest on the e-commerce community? Because what we know so far eBay already filled a lawsuit against Amazon. That happened on Wednesday, October 17th, in Santa Clara County in California.

Did the conflict become nasty between those two giants? Or perhaps who are selling on eBay. Decided suddenly to take the fight personally and counter-attack Amazon.

Maybe they want to hurt back the giant on Black Friday week.  It could none of those either because who knows what can happen now.  For in this new era of online shopping everything it’s possible. The consumers are defenseless against fraud. The easily targeted, victimized and vandalized.

Our disclosures to our are simple. If you are Amazon shoppers. You might plan to buy some goods online during the major shopping wave of Black Friday. We tell you to be extra cautious because your may be compromised and you may become a  victim of a potential identity theft.

So be vigilant on what you’re doing during this week online especially by shopping on www.amazon.com  for the holidays. What you have to remember in this story is:

Amazon has emailed out hundreds of thousands of users to inform their personal exposed.
An Amazon employee contract has been terminated over disclosing email addresses to third- sellers, the company said in October.
An Amazon employee acts as an and sent a lot of information customers information to a third- website. The name of the third entity has not revealed.
Amazon Customer had said. “As a result, the employee has been terminated and we are supporting law enforcement in their prosecution.”

For us, this language is not clear and suspicion. All the scenario looks that it almost that Amazon platform has been hack badly. The breach seems big enough to hut people. Because of the hackers were so astucious to set-up Amazon. The hackers seem had to place someone working inside Amazon to open a backdoor for on Amazon servers.
