phishing on E Bay

My Internet security has suddenly started blocking pages on E Bay because of phishing. I haven't changed anything. I was wondering if something has changed at that site.

Anybody else been getting phishing warnings?

Every once in a while people list bogus listings with infected code in them, that has thrown up flags with my software as well.

Nothin' yet. Geez, have hackers found another way to post bogus auctions. It was getting to be a real PITA for ligament sellers... and buyers for that matter.

Do you have Norton Internet Security, or some other Symantec product? I had a customer with this problem, I called support and everything, turns out it was a bug in one of their 'Live Updates' and we could do nothing but wait for another update.

So if that is the case, keep running your Live Updates to get it resolved.
