Hackers brazenly posted sensitive information including home addresses
and phone numbers for 1,200 eBay users to an official online forum
dedicated to fraud prevention on the auction site.
The information - which also included user names and email, and
possibly their credit card numbers and three-digit CVV2 numbers - was
visible for more than an hour to anyone visiting the forum. The
miscreants appeared to create a script that caused each user to log in
and post information associated with the person who owned the account.
The script spit out about 15 posts per minute, starting around 5:45
a.m. California time.
