This has been all over the news for the last 24 hours so most of you will be aware but just in case - if you have either an eBay or PayPal account you should change the passwords as soon as possible.

I don't pretend to be an expert but I would suggest different passwords for each as certainly for me having my eBay account hacked means very little but having my PayPal account hacked could be expensive.

eBay said that they would prompt every eBay user (128 million) to change their password. I have certainly not received any such prompt but have done so anyway.
