Zappos.com Reports Massive Data Breach

Online shoe and clothing retailer Zappos.com has warned its users that it has suffered a massive data breach.

Up to 24 million customers may have been impacted by the security breach, which has forced the firm to reset the passwords of its customers.

According to the company, which is owned by Amazon.com, details stolen include names, email addresses, billing/shipping addresses, phone numbers, and the last four digits of customers’ credit card numbers.

In addition, password hashes were exposed.

So, you’ll have to change your Zappos password if you want to shop from the store again. And, actually, it would make sense to ensure that you are not using the same password anywhere else on the net.

Disappointingly, there is no mention of the security breach on the front page of the Zappos website – one platform you would imagine they would use to inform their customers that there was a security problem of which they should be made aware.
