Amazon accounts hacked on Monday, with hackers claiming to have obtained information about the retailer’s business, the latest in a string of cyberattacks on major tech companies.
The company said in a statement that it was working with law enforcement to identify the individuals responsible for the attack and that it is working with other companies and law enforcement agencies to prevent future breaches of its networks.
“The security of our systems and data is a top priority for us and we are actively investigating all potential breaches,” the company said.
On Sunday, the hackers tweeted a photo of a large stack of data on the Amazons Amazon Cloud Drive.
The data included personal data such as email addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, dates of birth and gender, the group said in its tweet.
Earlier on Monday morning, Amazon said its security team was looking into the breach.
The company said the hackers were using a “small group of highly skilled cyber attackers” to access Amazon’s network.
“We are working with our security team to identify who is behind the attack,” the statement said.
The hackers, who claimed to have gained access to the Amazon Cloud drive, said they were taking credit for the breach, according to Reuters.
“If you think that the Amazon cloud drive was breached and you know about it, send a message to @AmazonUK using the hashtag #AmazonCloudDrive,” the tweet read.
Amazon, which was founded in 1996, has faced several recent cyberattacks.
Last year, a group of hackers broke into the company’s systems and stole customer information and the personal details of some 1 million people.
Amazon has also been hit by a cyberattack last year that wiped out its data center in California, the company has said.
