If you've got an eBay account, it's probably a good idea to change your password now. The online marketplace has just suffered a huge database breach that's left its 112 million users' accounts vulnerable.
The attack affected a database containing a list of encrypted passwords which, if made public, could easily be unencrypted. The database also contained emails, phone numbers, and dates of birth. It was reportedly accessed sometime between late February and early March using a series of employee log-in details.
According to Business Wire, the report claims that “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.”
The company is working with officials to investigate the matter, but until then better safe than sorry.
