EBay is said to have been hacked once again with customers being led to a spoof site that steals their credentials.
The flaw was originally identified by eBay PowerSeller Paul Kerr when he clicked on a listing for iPhone and was redirected to a page with a suspicious web address.
Kerr reported the issue to the company, but said eBay removed the listing only after a follow up call 12 hours later.
"We take the safety of our marketplace very seriously and are removing the listing as it is in violation of our policy on third-party links."
Kerr added that thousands of unsuspecting users might have given their login credentials and compromised their accounts.
