    No, I hadn't heard about it. Thanks for the tip Peter. Even though I haven't used Ebay in years I guess I will change my password.

    I tried to change my password, but my account was dormant for so long that it doesn't exist anymore.

    Hackers do go after dormant accounts. Especially if you have some good feedback. They can start ripping people off and get away with it for a while since you don't use the account anymore. Then you wonder why everyone's coming after you when their stuff starts not showing up.

    I am not aware of it. I do have an eBay account, tried to sell some stuff but never had a transaction on it so I leave it alone. :p
    I do not think the hacker will have a good use of my account. :p

    Thank you for the information!

    It would be quite dangerous if someone hacked into your account, as he would be able to make transactions with your money. Luckily I don't keep the money on my card, ha.

    Apparently it was into a area that held passwords/names ect but not financial data, if you go on to ebays home page gives you the info

    Ebay was quick to notify its customer base and apparently PayPal was not involved. I changed my eBay password immediately and haven't noticed anything unusual with my account.

    Same here but then again I tend to change password every now and then on sites that I buy from

    I just received an email now from eBay suggesting I should change my password. Finished changing my password now. :)
