Confidential Ebay Member Info Posted on Forum

Ebay.com reports on their blog that at some time this morning the names and contact information of some 1200 Ebay users were posted on their public "Trust and Safety" forum. The posts also appeared to contain members credit card information.

The forum has been shut down while Ebay and LiveWorld (their forums vendor) take steps to remedy the situation. Ebay reports that they are now in the process of attempting to contact affected members by phone.
