Got an email from ebay
Ebay sent me an email that they were hacked

The email is legit not a spam email from ebay that they were hacked and to change password. Email came in this AM.

snip of the email.
Here's why: Recently, our company discovered a cyberattack on our corporate information network. This attack compromised a database containing eBay user passwords.

What's important for you to know: We have no evidence that your financial information was accessed or compromised. And your password was encrypted

Here's what we know: This attack occurred between late February and early March and resulted in unauthorized access to a database of eBay users that includes customers' name, encrypted password, email address, physical address, phone number and date of birth.

Lets see 3 months latter they send this out, nice Ebay.

This got quite a lot of media attention last week- eBay announced in on their site Wednesday. Kind of surprised you didn't get a message before now.

Yes, this was posted here: [webmasterworld.com...] and until you do change your password, you can't use the account. They state that your personal information was exposed: name, address, email and more. Requires prompt attention, especially if the login credentials are used for other logins.

Yea I have had my head down for the last several months under a real tight time for a website launch, and really haven't been able to do much of anything. June 1 is the launch date and much still to do.
