If you've received and communication from Amazon warning you that your name and e-mail may have been exposed, it may be true.
When reached for comment, an Amazon spokesperson told TechCrunch that the issue exposed names as well as email addresses. “We have fixed the issue and informed customers who may have been impacted.” The company emailed all impacted users to be cautious.

It may look like a phishing e-mail, and there may yet be real phishing e-mails taking advantage of this .

Amazon customers should be cautious.
