eBay gets hacked

  • This doesn't appear to be a false alarm and reports suggest that eBay has been hacked. The company posted a message at 1:30 am asking its users to change their passwords. 

    Reuters notes that the page was taken down, but people had already read the message on Twitter by then. The company has now confirmed that the breach happened in its corporate information. "We believe there may be a large number of accounts involved," a spokesperson told. 

    It's not clear as to whether or not any financial information was affected.
