BATON ROUGE - The Better Business Bureau reports that eBay is asking users to change their passwords after a cyber-attack compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data.

The company said it has no evidence of unauthorized activity for eBay users, and there has been no evidence of unauthorized access to the personal, financial, or credit card information of its users.

The online auction and shopping company said the hackers only compromised a small number of employee log-in credentials, allowing unauthorized access to the company's corporate network.

PayPal users should not be concerned because PayPal account data is stored on a separate secure server that was not compromised and is encrypted, according to eBay.

The company began contacting its users Wednesday afternoon in an effort to ensure the security of all accounts.
