This hasn't really hit the mainstream media yet, but there has been a serious security breach at ebay: "I know eBay pretty well," Baldwin said. "They can use all the excuses and lies they want, but they have yet to explain how what is happening on this site could be happening if what I'm saying is not true: <b>that somebody has access to the back end.</b>" http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,257063,00.html "Rogue Romanian Hacker May Be Running Amok on EBay" I'd never fall for a phishing scam, yet somehow hackers obtained my ebay password, and used <b>my</b> ebay user ID to send out scam emails.

Is he that spookily talented, or is he just another, albeit talented and lucky, phisher who also stumbled on an e-mail with internal accounts? The eBay villagers are whispering that he can creep through eBay's internal databases and suck the lifeblood of customer accountsâlog-ins and passwordsâright out of their pulsing, 222 million-plus customer heart. He's putting up bogus listings as fast as eBay can take them down, and that proves he's walked through a security hole as big as a barn door.
