Global auction service eBay was hacked. The company began sending alerts to its users to change their passwords. The attack compromised the personal data of eBay users - names, (encrypted) passwords, email addresses, and phone numbers. However, the company assures that the financial information of users are safe, and there is no indication that the PayPal was hacked too.

Hacker attack was carried out in late February or early March and smaller number of accounts of eBay employees was compromised. This has enabled attackers unauthorized access to company's network, through which they conducted the attack on the database. To attack the eBay learned just two weeks ago.

Currently eBay has 112 million registered users, and over the past year through the site was carried out $205 billion traffic.

Is anyone surprised?
