If you didn’t read about it yet, here it is! The details are contained in the linked post from CNet below. The bottm line is that if you have an Ebay account, you would be best to change the password ASAP. Tell your friends and relatives as well.
If you also use PayPal (an Ebay company), don’t worry too much as they are confident that their separate, encrypted systems were not compromised. Yet.
My caution is not from information but experience with all the strange and mysterious things that happen on the “free” Internet. So the actual price is some levels of consternation, frustration, anger – maybe rage – if we lose something valuable or even precious.
But these days, it seems that such things are part of the price of admission. Free?
Thanks to Ryan and CNet for the heads-up
