EBay says client information stolen in hacking attack

E-commerce company eBay said a database was compromised in a hacking attack between late February and early March, and clients' non-financial information was stolen.

EBay said the compromised database contained customer names, encrypted passwords, e-mail addresses, birth dates, physical addresses and phone numbers. It said it would ask users to change their passwords.

The company said in a statement the attack has allowed unauthorized access to the company's corporate network but it found no evidence of any unauthorized access to financial or credit card information.
