Notification
I find the notification issues raised here troubling. The safest thing to do would be to do a forced reset, and to make the process for changing user passwords as simple as possible.

Re: Ebay password change
I changed my Ebay password, but I'm still getting the reminder to change it. I guess that leaving the notice up is the easiest way to reach everyone.

Time for Nok Nok Labs?
Not to be flippant, but with Samsung and PayPal turning to Nok Nok Labs, perhaps eBay could follow their lead. Dark Readings has covered Nok Nok Labs many times and I thought this was a nice nutshell: http://www.darkreading.com/risk/nok-nok-labs-delivers-on-vision-for-modern-authentication/d/d-id/1141317?

Their S3 Suite consists of:

-- The NNL(TM) Multifactor Authentication Server (MFAS), which provides a unified, flexible authentication infrastructure that enables user-friendly strong authentication for any device, any authenticator and any application.

-- The NNL(TM) Multifactor Authentication Client (MFAC) Mobile Edition with support for Android and iOS devices, which enables users to authenticate to any application using the existing security capabilities of their mobile devices. Also includes the Mobile App SDK and Authenticator Specific Module (ASM) SDK.

-- The NNL(TM) Multifactor Authentication Client (MFAC) Desktop Edition, with support for Windows 7 and Windows 8, provides user-friendly strong authentication to any application by unleashing the existing security capabilities of billions of desktops and mobile devices.

Call me crazy, but any site dealing with my money had better be securing their infrastructure at a minimum of this level of authentication.

Re: PayPal
Right there with you, Lorna! That was my first question too -- and despite eBay's protestations to the contrary, I'd recommend changing that PayPal password.

PayPal
My immediate thought was, is PayPal affected? I mean, so maybe someone logs in as me and bids on and wins something on eBay. That's bad. Using my PayPal to pay for it?Much, much worse. Nice to hear that "PayPal data is stored separately on a secure network, and all PayPal financial information is encrypted." Would be nicer if that were independently confirmed.
