Amazon changed it’s customers accounts passwords after what it seems to be a global security breach. Peoples from all the world received emails saying that their account’s password has changed:
This is an important message from Amazon.com
At Amazon we take your security and privacy very seriously. As part of our routine monitoring, we discovered a list of email address and password sets posted online. While the list was not Amazon-related, we know that many customers reuse their passwords on several websites. We believe your email address and password set was on that list. So we have taken the precaution of resetting your Amazon.com password. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused but felt that it was necessary to help protect you and your Amazon account.
To regain access to your Amazon customer account:
1. Go to Amazon.com and click the “Your Account” link at the top of our website.
2. Click the link that says “Forgot your password?”
3. Follow the instructions to set a new password for your account.
Please choose a new password and do not use the same password you used with us previously. We also highly recommend that you chose a password that you are not using on any other sites. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
If you have more details about this possible cyber attack, please contact us.
Meanwhile, if you have an account at Amazon, we suggest you to change your password as soon as possible.
