    Ebay will email all of it's users I believe .

    Please be careful “not” to click on any email “links” they could be from scammers.

    Go “direct” to the eBay site

    If unsure? do a Google search to find the correct and genuine site..

    Thanks for the heads up, I saw this on the news yesterday and when I logged in I was asked to validate my account and change passwords.

    I was informed of this some days ago, I was actually shocked to read Ebay could be a victim of such a thing, but I guess no one is safe nowadays. There are some really capable hackers out there :( I changed my password several days ago, fortunately I'm just a low profile user and have nothing to worry about (I sure hope so).
