The company investigated the incident and said that there is no sign of unauthorized activity for eBay users or access to financial or credit card information. However, eBay users are still advised to change their passwords, and passwords on other sites if they happen to use the same one.
The attack actually occurred sometime between late February and early March when these cyberattackers compromised a small number of employee log-in credentials and were able to access eBay's corporate network. eBay detected the compromised employee log-in credentials approximately two weeks ago.
The compromised database held information including customers’ names, encrypted passwords, email addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers and dates of birth.
Make sure you change your eBay password, and other passwords if they happen to be the same, just in case so that you don’t get hit with unwanted activity.
