I haven't received an eBay email yet but it's all over the news.

Thanks for the heads-up Paul!

I wouldn't trust half of what some of these companies say anyway. Apparently it's normal for the event to be announced at a later date after an attack, so they have time to investigate it and make a fix etc.

haha the only email I received was a 'new items from your favourite sellers'  Rolling Eyes 

I've added another link in the 1st post with some more info.

Thanks mate! Just generated a 20-char PW through Lastpass, been wanting to do that for a long time anyway.

Thankfully my ebay and paypal addresses were different and not shared with any other accounts I use (like banking or forums) but if you share the same password with any other website, you should really change them as well.
