eBay Hacked: Change Your Passwords

 

Warning: If you have an eBay account, change your password right away.

 

Yesterday, eBay revealed a cyberattack on a database containing customer information. This includes name, login information, email address, physical address, phone number and date of birth. Hackers obtained employee credentials, accessed the database, then copied the data. So far, eBay reports there's no reports of financial or credit card information. Also, if you store credit card information on PayPal, the company's database was not affected, since it's separate from eBay's.

 

ebay will be sending emails to customers to change their passwords--please do so immediately. Also, don't use the same password to log into all your sites.
