Vulnurability makes eBay Developers Program accounts at Risk

ebayeBay security specialists asked developer program members to change their passwords. This is due to a new vulnerability discovered that can allow an attacker to intercept important accounts details.

Kumar Kandaswamy eBay Developers program manager has reported on the guidance published that the company has found a way in which an outsider can access users account information at eBay Developers program, so as a preventive measures it is highly recommended to change all user passwords.

The vulnerability does not allow attackers to grab financial information such as credit card or bank account information or Social Security numbers.

But in 2007 a hacker called Vladuz has managed to bypass all the protection measures and to obtain eBay unauthorized accesses which are intended to be just for employees as a result the hacker was arrested in Romania.

eBay developers program helps users to work with its API and develop online application for web resources. Now when you click join and you want to select a new password there is a strict safety standards for creating password “ Your password must be 8 characters or longer, and contain at least 1 upper case letter (A-Z), 1 lower case letter (a-z), 1 number (0-9), and 1 special character (!@#$%*+-_.?). For example, Cool_devel0per.” That’s good for user’s security :-) .
