Zappos Struck By Hackers

Zappos is one of the biggest and most trusted online shoe and clothing retailers and today we found out that despite their size, security is lacking. Zappos reported the attack this morning and in the official statement they made it clear no credit card information was stolen, of course that doesn't exactly make it true.

Zappos did announce however that user data such as addresses, email info, and other personal information was compromised so users need to be aware. As many as 24 million users were affected by the attack which is an absolutely staggering number. This once again goes to show that no matter how big or how powerful a web company is, it will never be secure. Zappos is now beginning the process of securing user data but as we know all too well, it is essentially impossible to secure things online anymore.
