'Fraudster' posts confidential eBay member info on forum
Someone used an eBay Inc. discussion forum on Tuesday to post confidential information about eBay users along with what may be their credit card numbers.
The incident, which was first reported by AuctionBytes.com, a
technology news site that focuses on e-commerce, led the e-commerce
giant to shut down the forum, which ironically is devoted to the
discussion of security issues.
Nichola Sharpe, an eBay spokeswoman, confirmed that on Tuesday
morning someone the vendor describes as "a malicious fraudster" posted
the names and contact information of 1,200 eBay members on the
company's Trust & Safety discussion forum.
