eBay hacker did not compromise Oracle

27 Sept 2007

The news is full of reports about the hacker who exposed 1,200 eBay ID's, and one Oracle blogger offers unverified claims that an acquaintances PayPal account was cleaned-out! 

But don't believe any hype, it was not Oracle that got hacked!

eBay is one of the world's largest Oracle shops yet this data disclosure was not related to the database layer.

The latest word from eBay is that a front-end weakness was exploited, and you can see the dynamics of the attack here on Youtube, allegedly by the criminal himself.  Here, the hacker shows how he did it, all within the GUI.  BFD!

  eBay did issue this statement confirming that Oracle was not to blame:

Ebay told Network World that its servers weren't hacked to obtain the information posted. It says that the credit card numbers that were posted don't match financial information in its own database or that of its affiliate PayPal. It believes the credit card numbers posted aren't valid.
