wiredmikey writes "Zappos, best-known for selling shoes and clothing online and its top-notch customer service and corporate culture, appears to be the latest victim of a cyber attack resulting in a data breach.
In an email to Zappos employees on Sunday, CEO Tony Hsie asked employees to set aside 20 minutes of their time to read about the breach and what communications would be sent to its over 24 million customers.
Zappos was scooped by Amazon in 2009 for approximately $880 million.
While Hsieh said that credit card data was not compromised, he did say that "one or more" of the following pieces of personal information has been accessed by the attacker(s): customer names, e-mail addresses, billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers, the last four digits of credit card numbers. User passwords were "cryptographically scrambled," he said."
