The popular online merchandise site eBay is urging its customers to change their passwords after hackers managed to slip into one of its databases months ago, according to ABC News.



In a posting on the company’s website, eBay said a cyber-attack “compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data.”

Hackers broke into the database "between late February and early March," but eBay didn't detect a problem with employee log-in credentials -- which the hackers had hijacked -- until about two weeks ago, the statement said.
