Important Data Breach in the history (PART 1)

eBay Data Breach

One of the real-life examples describing the need for information and network security within the corporate network is eBay Data Breach. eBay is a well-known online auction platform that is widely used all over the world.

eBay announced its massive data breach in 2014, which contained sensitive data. One hundred forty-five (145) million customers were estimated to lose their data in the attack.

According to eBay, the data breach compromised the following information:

  • Customers Name
  • Encrypted Passwords
  • Postal Address
  • Contact Numbers
  • Date of Birth
This Kind of information must be encrypted instead of stored in plain text. eBay claims that no knowledge relating to security numbers like credit card information was compromised, although identity and password theft can also cause server risk.

eBay database containing financial information such as credit cards and other financial-related information is claimed to be kept in a separate and encrypted format.

The origin of the eBay data breach for hackers is by compromising a small number of employees' credentials via phishing between February & March 2014. Specific employees may be targeted to access eBay's network, or the eBay network itself was entirely being monitored and then compromised.

They claimed the detection of this cyber attack within two weeks.
