eBay Data Comprimise
May 27, 2014
eBay Inc. has confirmed that they have suffered a compromise and that users will need to take action to protect themselves. The compromise, which took place sometime between late February and early March, allowed the hackers access to the names, e-mail addresses, encrypted passwords, postal addresses, phone numbers, and date of birth of customers.
The company also said it has no evidence of unauthorized access or compromises to personal or financial information for PayPal users. PayPal data is stored separately on a secure network, and all PayPal financial information is encrypted.
eBay has begun notifying customers that they need to change their passwords. Users who have recycled their password across multiple sites should be even more concerned and should instigate a broad password re-set.
Updating your Elmira Savings Bank Online Banking password on a regular basis is always recommended. If you are have any questions or concerns, please contact our Call Center at (607) 734-3374, or visit your local branch office.
