eBay customers are having to reset their passwords after hackers broke into the online retail site.

Hackers now have possession of eBay customer names, account passwords, email addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers and birth dates.

The company picked up the breach two weeks ago, after discovering some employee credentials were stolen. The information theft happened two months ago.

eBay's subsidiary, PayPal, was untouched by the data breach.

The company says it has not spotted any increase in fraudulent activity on eBay yet.
