The company has alerted customers that hackers gained inappropriate access to customers’ names, email addresses, billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers, the last four digits of their credit card numbers, and/or their cryptographically scrambled password (but not actual password).
The Huffington Post shared a letter from the CEO of Zappos, who told customers to “reset their passwords on Zappos.com and any other website where they use a similar password. The company also warned customers that hackers may use their information to trick them into revealing more sensitive data.”
What that means is for customers to avoid falling for a phishing scam.
In true phishing fashion, a fake email tries to dupe recipients into clicking on the embedded links in an attempt to obtain sensitive information like credit card account numbers and passwords.
