Corporate data breaches have seen a spike in recent months, and unfortunately American Express is the latest to join a long list of companies affected by hackers infiltrating their customerís credit card information.
As eBay flounders while trying to adequately respond to the breach it disclosed last week, and deems weak passwords to be good but stronger ones to be weak, researchers are coming forth with vulnerabilities affecting the company's web properties.
A database containing eBay customersí name, encrypted password, email address, physical address, phone number and date of birth was compromised.
eBay has been hacked, and its customers are urged to change their account password as soon a possible.
Credit and debit card fraud tops Americans' security concerns in 2014, against a recent backdrop of major retail and banking security breaches, according to Unisys and the Lieberman Research Group.
