As for exactly how many employees that may be, or how many customers were affected by the data breach, Amazon remains inveterately tight-lipped as ever.

The police have asked for the giant detailed report on the use of these cameras.

"Over the last four years, Ring has received four complaints or inquiries regarding a team member's access to Ring video data", Amazon Vice President of Public Policy Brian Huseman wrote in the letter.

Amazon denies that camera Ring have been broken into by third parties. The company has identified the employee and terminated him, the email says.

At the time, the Wall Street Journal reported that some Amazon employees sold customer data to third-party sellers and brokers, who then used the data to get better reviews and improve their sales. Amazon said multiple employees were fired.

"The individuals responsible for this incident have been terminated and we are supporting law enforcement in their prosecution", Amazon's spokesperson told Business Insider.

Amazon noticed a almost identical incident in October 2018, when it dismissed an employee for sharing customer email addresses with a third party.

The spokesperson declined to share details on how many employees were involved, Business Insider reports. "No other information related to your account was shared", Amazons said in a statement obtained by TechCrunch.

Not much is known about this particular incident.

The e-commerce giant's home security company, Ring, confirmed firing four employees for abusing their ability to view customers' video feeds in a January 6 letter to five Democratic U.S. senators.
