Hacked eBay Faces Multiple Investigations
Web retailer eBay is facing transatlantic scrutiny from the authorities over a massive cyber attack that compromised the personal data of its 145 million users.
Connecticut, Florida and Illinois have launched a joint inquiry over the hack, which came to light on Wednesday.
The investigation will focus on the scope of the data breach and eBay’s response, said Connecticut officials.
Some customers have complained in web forums and on social media that they received no email warning from eBay to change their password, only learning about the cyber attack from the media.
