Online auction site eBay has been the victim of a huge cyber attack that has affected 128 million users. Hackers managed to gain access to the names, passwords, e-mail address, date of birth and street addresses of users.

This attack took place in late February and early March. Users need to change their passwords ASAP and keep a sharp eye on bank statements and other suspicious activity that could indicate users have been the victim of identity theft.

The company says PayPal accounts were not affected by this attack.
