eBay Issues, Then Deletes Call to Change Passwords
eBay issued a notice on its websites asking users to change their passwords, but took down the message a short time later without explanation. The message, on its PayPal online payment unit's press and community website pages, didn't say why passwords needed to be changed. eBay and PayPal representatives weren't immediately available for comment on the notice issued at 1:30 a.m. ET, which was previously reported by tech blog Engadget. The message headline was "eBay Inc. To Ask All eBay Users To Change Passwords," but had no other information other than the words "place holder text."
