Just about to post this myself!

They really ask for it don't they?

I expect groups are lining up in waves to attack EBay.

said that cyber-attackers accessed the information after obtaining "a small number of employee log-in credentials"

Not just one employee but a number of them.

Does any one think cut backs went a little too far for that company.

Ebay staff passwords dog1234, cat1234, hipo1234.

I think EB will need to totally revamp its website - and revamp itself!

Facebook has come out with Shopify, where you can sell stuff. Right now, I see it being a place for shops like Nasty Gal. Nasty Gal took off on EB (before EB pissed her off and she went and created her own website, having gathered a sizeable following) but FB's Shopify platform looks better. It's only a matter of time before they have an "auction" function, where ppl like you and me can sell stuff.

Interestingly, when I perused own of these Shopify 'shops', they have PP as payment processor. Seriously, EB and PP need to split.

For us, this means more options and places to sell our stuff.

Default Re: WARNING for ALL users

everyone...really...chill.

with all you know about stealth.....

actually everything that makes creating sth accounts a PITA will make this almost not an issue.

so they have everyones passowrd

wooooo big deal.

so they go to login to you account, hmm new IP?, no cookies, different browser? i mean this is going to set off so many red flags.

next step, they are going to ask all those secret questions....end of the road sucker...


just from looking at this on the surface level...this seems like the stupidest hack, that is going to result in almost worthless data.

wait till mr.dum dum tries to go use this data on a large scale, they'll be logging IP addresses left and right

*ding dong* nope thats not the pizza man.

Agree 100% with you on that. Not worried about the Hackers, more worried with the Scammers trying to use this to there advantage. Call me paranoid but I already pulled my High End items time to take a little Mini Vaction

Default Re: WARNING for ALL users

True reason why I panicked at first was due to a few Gmail account emails being compromised 4 months ago.

They got access to the ebay account (Thankfully, not the paypal) And thankfully, it was a starter account. Only around 4 feedback or so.
I had to change every account that was working as well as the accounts I had 'dormant' ,,,tis a pain that makes me cry in the corner to think about.

But its a major pain to have to call ebay about every account that has been logged in in another country randomly.
