Was eBay site compromised for hours?

  • The eBay site remained compromised for several hours, with users who clicked on some links diverted to another site built to steal their data, media reports said.

    The fake site was reportedly designed to appear as if it were the online retailer’s welcome page.

    Some experts have expressed concern over the fact that it took eBay so long to remove the fake listing. 

    However, an eBay spokesperson said the report “relates only to a ‘single item listing’ on eBay.co.uk,” which has been removed.
