Scary Story About Amazon Account Stolen Through Social Engineering
Digital Trends has a very scary story about how easy it is for an Amazon account to be hacked. “It turns out if you want to break into someone else’s Amazon account, you don’t need to know their password, mother’s maiden name, or what their first pet was called. You just need to keep asking for information. That’s what happened with the case of Eric Springer, who found that Amazon customer support had handed over his personal information with just some gentle prodding.” Good grief, Amazon.
