I don't like this but we have to stay aware of the threats that are out there. For one here is a very nice article about this topic you can link to and gain more insight about Amazon and hack attacks. Please note: None of the links in my discussions reflect my personal views of this subject and I hold no specific preference towards the sources.

We live in a world that keeps pushing online services like Amazon Prime and a price is being paid in increased threat to identity theft and personal accounts. You don't have these issues when you pay cash at a store.

It goes beyond our usual precedents and basic assumptions.

@lookatdesktop Last night, my husband and I watched an episode of a series we are watching on Amazon and we watched it. But, then when we went to watch the next episode, it wouldn't connect. We thought it was the internet connection, so we reset the connection but that didn't help. The internet was fine, so we checked Netflix and it worked. Then we tried another show on Amazon and it would not work. So, the point I am making is that the whole site was down last night starting around 9 pm eastern time. My husband sent them an e-mail. I have not checked it since last night.

@infatuatedbby I have had no problems with Amazon. It's is best to just be careful. You can always contact their support for more feedback.

@lookatdesktop I haven't had any problems either except my reviews are taking a while to be updated.

I don't have Amazon Prime, but anyone who does would be concerned. This is horrible!

A lot of people have Amazon Prime, so this is especially troublesome. Has your Amazon ever been hacked?

Not that I am personally certain of. But I know an e-mail from Amazon would put me in instant panic mode.
