I just got an email on the Sunday follow this news breaking. So for 4-5 days, the only real source of warning for millions of people were news reports and online posts on the subject. This should be an example of how not to handle a data breach. I have to wonder if the people at ebay are so isolated from reality that they didn't hear about the Target data breach and all the corporate heads that rolled as a result. Ebay dropped the ball on this, and whoever was making the decisions on this should be unemployed. Sadly, if they lose their jobs they will probably get a muli-million dollar golden parachute, so the only penalty they will really face is what to do with all that money in their newfound free time.
