eBay has posted this notice on http://www.ebayinc.com/in_the_news/story/faq-ebay-password-change:
Our company recently discovered a cyberattack that comprised [sic] a small number of employee log in credentials, allowing unauthorized access to eBay’s corporate network. As a result, a database containing encrypted password and other non-financial data was compromised. There is no evidence of the compromise affecting accounts for Paypal users, and no evidence of any unauthorized access to personal, financial or credit card information, which is stored separately in encrypted formats. The company is asking all eBay users to change their passwords.
The attack resulted in unauthorized access to a database of eBay users that included:
Date of birth

I use the same password for multiple accounts. Do I now need to change all of them?
If you used the same password for eBay and any other site, we encourage our customers to change their passwords for those sites too. As a matter of good practice, the same password should never be used across multiple sites or accounts.
