24 Million Customers' Account Details Hacked From Zappos [forbes.com]
Twenty-four million Zappos customers are getting an unpleasant Sunday-evening surprise.
The Amazon-owned e-commerce firm has revealed that it was the target of a cyber attack that gained access to its internal network, including the accounts of 24 million of its users. Though the company says that no complete credit card numbers were revealed in the breach, the intruders may have accessed customersí names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, addresses, the last four digits of their credit card numbers, and encrypted passwords. Zappos says itís taken the precaution of resetting the passwords of all its customers and directing them to set a new password upon visiting the site.
Ouch! That's a lot of people.
