Amazon sackings 'follow sales data leaks'
Amazon has sacked workers it believes had been misusing internal data on high-selling products, the Wall Street Journal reports. Amazon reportedly believed the staff, in India, China and the US, had abused their access to an internal database. The WSJ said the sackings were part of a broad effort at Amazon to combat merchants trying to trick its systems into making their products more prominent. Amazon has now reduced access to internal sales data and limited how many searches can be done on the database. Amazon told BBC News it had "Sophisticated systems to restrict and audit access" to its internal sales data.
