As I read through the news on the Ebay breach, I got to thinking, it’s not just the Ebay account information you have to worry about, rather ANY other account that matches.
For instance you can log into Ebay with either your email address, or userID. Now let’s say you are using the same email address and password for PayPal, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, WordPress, Twitter, or some other fairly popular public site.
Since the hackers stole your information from Ebay, they could simply troll through other sites on the web with your login information, and see if the door opens.
You do not need to be a brain surgeon to put two and two together. So after you change your Ebay account password, do the same for your other accounts.
