After eBay announced in late May that hackers had gained access to the personal information—including names, birth dates, encrypted passwords, email and physical addresses, and phone numbers—of 145 million customers, both state and federal officials launched investigations. Attorneys general from ConnecticutFloridaIllinois, and reportedly California, are coordinating an inquiry into eBay’s data protection and response measures. Congressmen Joe Barton and Bobby Rush, members of the Congressional Bi-Partisan Privacy Caucus, sent a letter to eBay asking for more information about the scope of the breach and the data protection measures that were in place. Meanwhile, the data protection authority in Luxembourg, eBay’s European base, has launched its own investigation into eBay’s data protection practices.
