    An affiliate promotional code for a discount came for work. Registered on Panasonic eplaza (the official Panasonic online store on their domain).

    The password in the letter came in clear text and in a hidden copy (which not every client will show) to the following people: Alexey Bratushka (, Olga Panayetova ( and Vadim Vikhrov (vadim.vikhrov @ Why do these people need passwords: a question for the security service. And there are a lot of use cases with the right hands: a targeted address database + login with a password that allows you to parse personal accounts and purchase history. Dictionary database of passwords. Take and send / sell.

Partners are asked to indicate corporate mail: many in the online store can specify the same password as work mail (ordinary users will indicate, of course, their regular mail).

You will receive a letter to the mailbox with the status on changing the password, a copy to the same 3 people and, attention, a link at the end by which the password can be changed again (sarcasm tag: to help SEO, not otherwise, since the password is not written during the change )
