Amazon has fired an employee who disclosed customer email addresses to a third party.





“No other information related to your account was shared,” Amazon said in a message to customers. “This is not a result of anything you have done and there is no need for you to take any action.”





In addition to firing the employee responsible for violating the company’s policies, Amazon explained that the employee has been referred to law enforcement.





The company appears to have fired multiple employees, according to a statement sent to Motherboard.





“Though the extent of the leak is currently unknown, a number of Amazon customers have been notified that their email addresses have been passed on to a third-party by an employee, which has resulted in their termination,” said Orion Cassetto, director of product marketing at Exabeam, who underscored that “threats from legitimate users have always been more elusive and harder to detect or prevent than traditional external threats.”
