ebay-passwords-under-attack-from-botnet

(0 comments)

A botnet is supposedly attempting to brute force attack Ebay's password system according to Alladin Systems. There is no response from Ebay about the matter yet. Does that mean they have been unsuccessful? I would think that a brute force attack on passwords would result in a lot of users being disabled, which we would have heard about by now.

Hat tip to Dave Jevens who points out that it is another argument for two-factor authentication.
