eBay Drama Continues

That doesn’t put an end to the eBay drama. Last week, eBay asked users to change their passwords in the wake of a cyberattack that compromised one of its databases. Unfortunately, it was a database that included eBay customers' names, encrypted passwords, e-mail addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers and dates of birth. But before the dust could settle on that drama another issue emerged.

According to Jordan Lee Jones, a college student in the United Kingdom, there’s a second vulnerability that remains open to hackers. Jones said he notified eBay via e-mail on Friday and got no response. He has published what he calls the “eBay cross-site scripting code” on his blog. And eBay is still under investigation by several attorneys general in the U.S. as well as at least one European watchdog.

“The magnitude of the reported eBay data breach could be of historic proportions, and my office is part of a group of other attorneys general in the country investigating the matter,” said Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. “We must do everything in our power to protect consumers’ personal information, which is exactly why I worked with the Florida Legislature on the Florida Information Protection Act.”
