Amazon fires employees for leaking customer emails

Amazon.com Inc. said it had fired employees for leaking customer email addresses and phone numbers to an unspecified third party, the second time this week the technology giant acknowledged some workers had improperly accessed customer data.

“We are writing to let you know that your email address and phone number were disclosed by an Amazon employee to a third party in violation of our policies,” Amazon’s customer service team said in an email to a customer shared Friday on social media.

What an odd article. Maybe we can start a thread : "Interesting Twitter screenshots".

They fessed up to the incident and took remedial action.

The transparency is much appreciated.

Have Microsoft/Apple/Google/Oracle responded in similar fashion in the past?

When this **** happens to them they do.

Difference is it doesn’t happen.
