Putin whistle-blowing...share, comment & distribute
Vad ca inaptii tac ca "porcul in papusoi" despre treaba asta asa ca postez aici: se pare ca au fost hackuiti si tac in privinta asta. Am aplicatia eBay pe telefon si Sambata dimineata (aproximativ ora 8.30) primesc o notificare de la app ca produsul meu s-a vandut. Nu aveam nimic postat de vanzare si nu folosisem pana atunci eBay-ul de vreo 1-2 luni. A trebuit sa astept pana la 9am sa vorbesc cu cineva de la support si tipa cica "da, stim ca sunt ceva hackeri care fac chestia asta insa se pare a fi automata". A verificat adresa de IP de unde s-a postat produsul si era de Hong Kong. Ce-i mai nasol e ca sunt foarte discreti in treburile astea - nu am primit nici o notificare referitor la schimbarea parolei, ca a fost postat un item nou, ca am vandut ceva nimic - de obicei primesc toate astea prin mail. Daca nu aveam aplicatia pe telefon nu aflam poate nimic, poate doar cand era prea tarziu. Si tipa de la eBay support cica "da, stim ca fac chestia asta, dar nu stim inca cum o fac, se pare a fi un bot care face tranzactii multe si marunte", etc.
And the English version -
eBay have been hacked and they seem to be keeping quiet about it. I have the eBay app on my phone and on Saturday morning (approx 8.30am) I get a notification from the app that my item has been sold. I did not have any item on sale and have not been using eBay for the past 1-2 months. I had to wait until 9am to ring their support and they were like "yeah, we know there's some hackers who are doing this, seems to be automated". And they checked the IP address from where the listing was made and it was from Hong Kong. But what's more worrying is the stealth with which they've done this - I had no notification of my account changing password, had no notification that an item has been posted for sale, etc. If I wouldn't have had the app on my phone, I would have probably not found about it until too late. And the lady on eBay support on the phone was like "yeah, we know about this, but we don't know how they're doing it, seems to be some bot as they're doing loads of small value transactions", etc.
