On Wednesday morning, eBay Inc. told its users to modify their passwords with an immediate effect. The online public sale house and retailer stated in a press release that it had been hacked and all of its 145 million active users were in danger.
Apparently, hackers gained illegal access to a database that incorporated eBay customers’ names, encrypted passwords, and dates of birth and home addresses. eBay said that financial data like credit card numbers were stored up disjointedly and were not compromised. Receptively, the corporation said it has seen any deceitful activity due to the hack.
