Hacked eBay makes users change passwords [ANSA]

(ANSA Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (ANSA) - Rome, May 21 - EBay said Wednesday it will ask users to change passwords following a cyber-attack on one of its databases. The US firm said the late February-early March hack did not result in unauthorised activity on its members' accounts. But changing the passwords was "best practice and will help enhance security for eBay users", it said. The California-based company has 128 million active users and accounted for $212 billion worth of commerce on its various marketplaces and other services in 2013.
