Zappos.com asks users to reset passwords
Zappos.com has been hacked and now the site is asking its 24 million customers to reset their passwords.
CNN reports that Zappos.com was the target of a cyber attack which has put 24 million accounts at risk. “We were recently the victim of a cyber attack by a criminal who gained access to parts of our internal network and systems through one of our servers in Kentucky,” a posting on the Zappos site details.
The company has posted instructions on their site, and sent out emails to customers, detailing how users can rest their passwords. The server that was hacked allowed the hackers to gain access to Zappos customers’ names, e-mail addresses, billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers and the last four digits of credit card numbers and encrypted passwords.
Zappos is trying to reassure customers, saying that full credit card numbers and other payment info were stored on a separate server that was not hacked.
