    Apparently they took it down so to add force password change to users that have not already changed their password.

    It's not very reassuring to know that millions of user’s personal data is in the hands of crooks now that can be used in many ways. It also doesn’t take a genius to figure out alot of ppl use the same password for the likes of paypal etc too.

    I had to laugh though how the hackers got in as they found a back door using employees user login accounts so could gain access to the database. We are not taking about this happening yesterday but happened weeks ago and they have only decided to act now.

    So much for ebay security.
