Change your eBay passwords please

eBay has evidently been hacked to pieces, so for your own safety I would suggest that you change your eBay passwords as soon as possible. If you also use the same password for your email account (lots of folks use the same password for everything) then it's probably a very good idea to change that as well.

"The company said unknown hackers stole email addresses, encrypted passwords, birth dates, mailing addresses and other information in an attack carried out between late February and early March. The files did not contain financial information."

Probably couldn't hurt to get yourself a good password as well if you are switching to a new one.

It probably takes a little while to send out 150 million emails
