And as usual, the human component was the weakest link... no matter how well you lock down the hardware and software, as soon as you trust meat there will be problems.

Didn't have any e-mail from Ebay but I've done it anyway  :hat3:

Found it in General Announcements when I clicked on it from My Ebay.

I've changed mine, but I think there is sod all on my FB page that is worth nicking, especially since my profile is made up of a load of old bollox from the drop down menus... ;D

Getting back to a serious note on this one
The major danger is theft of your identity where they can find out your name, address, email address, phone number, secret question/answer and your password.
The big problem is that many people typically use the same password on many sites and although them attempting to buy or sell using your credentials on EBay, isn't a major problem because they don't have access to your funds UNLESS you are stupid enough top use the same password for both EBay & PayPal and/or your bank/credit card.
