eBay Accounts Hacked: Change Your Password!

Popular internet website eBay has just announced that the company has fell victim to a cyberattack that has compromised user’s encrypted passwords along with non-financial data. However, eBay has stated there is no evidence of unauthorized activity on user accounts, and no financial or credit card information was compromised.

In a statement, eBay said: 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.

eBay also owns PayPal, but PayPal information has not been compromised. The PayPal information is stored on a different network. The company will begin to notify users via email, their website, and other channels to encourage users to change their password.

The breach comes after some bigger hacking stories this year. With the Heartbleed bug which affected millions of users, it serves as a reminder to always be vigilant and not use the same passwords across multiple services.

If you use the same password for PayPal and other websites (which we highly do not recommend), please change your password immediately.
