Ebay accounts hacked globally

The Ebay boards are buzzing with this news: Over more than 700 fake Buy it now listings have been made from existing accounts through a phishing scam on the Ebay Motors site. Yikes.

Apparently users were sent questions about existing items and asked to respond by clicking the "Respond Now" button in the email, which took them to a page asking for them to log in. Change your passwords, folks!

Update: the page was an actual user's "Me page" on Ebay. Double yikes.
