E-commerce: Amazon Recent . Does company facing technical problems has been victim hacking attack?

come e-commerce giant exposes sensitive information online?

Although this be true, Amazon the e-commerce giant. Exposes millions names, email and eventually credit information online by inadvertence this week.  spokesperson from e-commerce platform Wednesday it had inadvertently disclosed the names and email addresses . The reason apparently is related to the e-commerce giant described minor technical error.

However, Amazon did even bother to elaborate is the nature of this error. The company just affirmed fixed the issue for the time being. Amazon also confirmed the incident was a breach of its any of its systems. “We have fixed the issue which you have been impacted, informed the ’s . ”  An Amazon spokesperson a very brief statement.

Therefore, Amazon affirmed its had emailed out the company customers base. The reason is simple. Amazon wants all shoppers to be very cautious. Especially during the Friday shopping 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 accounts were affected. secondo: Amazon did answer any questions about the technical error was. Either for long these pieces of information exposed public.

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

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

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

This scenario happened after recently 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. According to what is circulating on different pro-hackers on the . Amazon was probably the victim of a breach.

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

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

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

Maybe want to hurt back the giant on Friday week.  It could none of those either because who knows what can happen now.  For in this era of online shopping 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 some goods online during the shopping of Friday. We tell you to be extra cautious because data may be compromised and you may 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 of users to inform them their personal data was exposed.
An Amazon employee contract has been terminated disclosing email addresses to -party sellers, the company said in October.
An Amazon employee acts an insider and sent a of information customers information to a -party seller . The name of the third party entity has not revealed.
Amazon had said. “ a result, the employee has been terminated and we are supporting law enforcement in their prosecution.”

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