Hacked in 60 seconds: Why you should change your eBay password right now

Hacked in 60 seconds: Why you should change your eBay password right now

EBay isn't having a good security year. Back in February and March, it lost more than 120 million user names and passwords to hackers. At the time the news broke in May, I told you to change your eBay password.

Right after that, security researchers found a flaw in eBay that could give hackers your password if you visited a malicious site while still logged in to your eBay account. EBay fixed the problem, but it was a good idea to change your password again.

Then last week, I told you about an eBay phishing scam that could trick you into giving up your username and password. In that case, you didn't have to change your password - unless you think you fell for the trick.

Still, it seems like if you use eBay, you should get used to changing your password. There's been another problem with eBay and you - surprise! - need to change your password.
