Which is basically everyone...

There's chatter among a few different technology forums I follow saying that PayPal has had a major security breach recently. There's some talk of accounts getting dumped for a few companies and posts have started showing up in Facebook groups I'm a member of.

When is not exact but supposedly in the last 6 hours. Many of us with large sums in balance are transferring funds out just to play it safe. Could be a false alarm but if you carry a big balance you may want to pull it to be safe. Changing your password is probably a good idea too.

Turns out PayPal bought out another payment company and that company was hacked. Any accounts on PayPal that we're related or suspected had their funds removed. The suspected pool was quite large, many unrelated accounts had funds removed but returned today. A few IT companies went crazy wondering where their funds went since PayPal was leaving them in the dark. Seems to be sorted out now. yes

Ouch. That's the problem with these company mergers. Hackers just need to find the weakest link in the combined company and infiltrate that way. :/

Shiiiit thanks. I had a fair number of sales here and on eBay recently and was being lazy about the funds. Deposited them and changed my pw.
