Ebay was hacked, change your passwords ASAP

Postby Squelchtone » Wed May 21, 2014 9:49 pm

*News Flash*

ebay has been hacked, and advises all members to change passwords immediately.

the attack let the bad guys get:
Usernames
Passwords
Emails
Addresses
Phone numbers
Birthdays

To change your password, log into ebay, on the top left look where it says Hi! <yourname>, click that and drop down to Account Settings, then on the left menu click My Account < Personal Information, then click Edit on the right to change password.

I have changed my password, set a new secret question, and now I'm off to change my Paypal password just to be safe.

update: word is they were hacked late February early March.

*This is a Global Announcement, and will be up for a week or two*
