The official quote released:
“[eBay] …will be asking eBay users to change their passwords because of a cyberattack that compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data. After conducting extensive tests on its networks, the company said it has 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. However, changing passwords is a best practice and will help enhance security for eBay users.“
If you’re an eBay user don’t forget to change your password, you will be receiving a message from eBay giving information about the attack and what you need to do to change your password.
