States probe eBay following major cyberattack

|About: eBay Inc. (EBAY)|By:, SA News Editor

Attorneys general in Connecticut, Illinois and Florida are investigating eBay (EBAY) after the auction Web site disclosed this week that a database with encrypted passwords and personal information was breached in February and March.

New York AG Eric Schneiderman hasn't announced a formal probe into eBay, although he wants the company to provide its customers with free credit-monitoring services, just as Target has done for NY victims of the major cyberattack that the retailer suffered late last year.
