Online marketplace eBay has told clients to change their passwords after non-financial information was stolen in a hacking attack last February and early March. Customer names, encrypted passwords, email addresses, birth dates, physical addresses and phone numbers were on a database that was compromised in the attack. In a statement, eBay said it had found no evidence of any access to clients’ financial or credit card details. The e-commerce site said in a press release: ‘Working with law enforcement and leading security experts, the company is aggressively investigating the matter and applying the best forensics tools and practices to protect customers.’
