eBay Advises Users to Change Passwords

Official eBay Statement


EBay said beginning later today it will be asking eBay users to change their passwords because of a cyberattack that compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data. After conducting extensive tests on its networks, the company said it has no evidence of the compromise resulting in unauthorized activity for eBay users, and no evidence of any unauthorized access to financial or credit card information, which is stored separately in encrypted formats. However, changing passwords is a best practice and will help enhance security for eBay users.Information security and customer data protection are of paramount importance to eBay Inc., and eBay regrets any inconvenience or concern that this password reset may cause our customers. We know our customers trust us with their information, and we take seriously our commitment to maintaining a safe, secure and trusted global marketplace.Cyberattackers compromised a small number of employee log-in credentials, allowing unauthorized access to eBay’s corporate network, the company said. Working with law enforcement and leading security experts, the company is aggressively investigating the matter and applying the best forensics tools and practices to protect customers.

  1. first they allow buyers to file claims for items not covered by ebay buyer protection, like services, they send buyers refunds after immediately opening then closing a case, not admitting that these items were not covered since they were specifically listed as SERVICES, they then close all access to purchase information to contact buyers. now they compromise password information. Also did you know that ebay, paypal, and half.com were all controlled by the same entity?? Can someone say Monopoly?
