U.S. states probe eBay cyber attack as customers complain


(Reuters) - EBay Inc came under pressure on Thursday over a massive hacking of customer data as three U.S. states began investigating the e-commerce company's security practices.

Connecticut, Florida and Illinois said they are jointly investigating the matter. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman requested eBay provide free credit monitoring for everyone affected.

Details about what happened are still unclear because eBay has provided few details about the attack. It is also unclear what legal authority states have over eBay's handling of the matter.

The states' quick move shows that authorities are serious about holding companies accountable for securing data following high-profile breaches at other companies, including retailers Target Corp, Neiman Marcus and Michaels and credit monitoring bureau Experian Plc.

No matter what the FCC decides, we can still access DU. It might be slower than usual, but we'll get here.

adventures in computer hardware failure-land, volume 23

I'm doing my thing last night happy as a clam. All of a sudden I hear some noise from my case. My screen dims. My heart stops...but only for a second. A reboot later and BIOS reveals NO storage drives found ! Hmmm.....

I go to my local guy who does a great job fixing computers at a good price. He remembers me from 2 years ago, when my problem was, in his words, " the clusterfuck of the year". He was absolutely right about that.

Two hours later, the RAID card is replaced with this one . I guess I can't complain about 3.5 years of service from the old card.

Nirvana has returned.

Easiest way to tell maximal compatibility of a web page with your browser ?

I know Firefox and Chrome are very compatible with the vast majority of web pages. IE used to be the default one. I like Opera, so sometimes I'm out of luck.

What's the easy way ? Look at page source ? Thanks.
