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

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

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

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

Therefore, Amazon affirmed its customer 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. many reasons because primo: it is unclear how many were affected. secondo: Amazon did answer any questions what the technical error was. Either how long these pieces of information exposed public.

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

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

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

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

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

Does it’s a new kind of conflict between Amazon and some party interest on the e-commerce ? Because what we know so far eBay already filled a lawsuit against Amazon. That happened on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 in Santa Clara County in .

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

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

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

So be vigilant on what you’re doing during this online especially 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 them personal data was exposed.
An Amazon employee contract has been terminated over disclosing email addresses to -party sellers, the company said in October.
An Amazon employee acts as an and sent of information customers information to a -party website. The name of the third party entity has not revealed.
Amazon Customer had said. “As a result, the employee has been terminated and we are supporting law enforcement in prosecution.”

For us, this is not clear and suspicion. All the scenario looks that it almost certain 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 someone working inside Amazon to a backdoor for them on Amazon servers.
