eBay Password Problem

Sometime ago I had a problem with one of the servers not accepting my password properly. After a while i figured out that it only took first 8 characters as valid and all the rest it just discarded. Sweet security! So being me, I set out to check most all of the websites I use for account access etc. Didn't find many with problems, except eBay! I found out that the website access passwords are NOT CASE SENSITIVE!!!! That knowledge disturbed me alot. I emailed eBay support to look into the matter and to fix the problem once found. I received a couple of replies from them saying that they will look into the matter etc. etc. Then, nothing! Nothing at all. They have not fixed the problem until today Monday May 01, 2006 2:24PM.

I figured if I create a blog, if nothing happens, I am atleast telling the world about the problem.

I emailed them the same concern. Got a generic form reply and then, like you, nothing. Bad eBay!

It's amazing how much they DON'T take security seriously! I know it's not that hard to implement either.
