Amazon Keeps Mum on Pre-Thanksgiving Data Breach

Amazon had a great Cyber Monday of course. One way they encouraged that was to bury news of a customer data breach that leaked out the day before Thanksgiving. Amazon did the absolute bare minimum, informing affected customers in vague terms where it was legally obligated to do so and refusing to answer press inquiries. If you haven’t heard about that breach, well, that was the idea. And if you’ve been getting an unusual number of phishing emails, you might know who to blame.
