Default Dang, ebay got spammed hardcore!

I just went to ebay motors, clicked on "car and truck parts" and there are a million auctions in the main listing for "Here is your chance to spend a day with a *****" with a rather explicit picture. Ebay got spammed hardcore!

Damn, I just missed it... I just checked and it looks like things are back to normal at ebay.

You know there was 14 year old kid in central Europe somewhere bragging to his pals about how he screwed ebay... if he was able to create all these fake auctions I wonder if he got any private info from ebay.... hmmmm.

Odd. I can't find this in the news anywhere...

Or maybe I just don't know how to Google well.

I doubt it was a hack on ebay; just a ton of the same pornographic auctions listed all at once. I'm sure ebay just deleted the account along with all the auctions in one swift action. It was kinda funny, I certainly wasn't expecting it when I went to look for parts.
