Question I was wondering if?

overlander64 and, all....

I realize this is a far-fetch idea but, I wondered if your computer's remote feature is, somehow, enabled?
For those that use XP, see if your firewall enabled?
I'd also check the security level settings of your internet and, which website's you may have set as 'Trusted sites'..
Just a few things to look at while you're waiting for EBay to resolve this..
Good luck..
ciao
BTW, I have an EBay account, etc...and, have never seen this problem yet..Whew..
I run a program called 'window washer daily and, manually deleted cookies etc, after running a program called AD-AWARE, Version 6.0

i usually have the ordinary running slow, items not showing up problems, but tonight when I hit my ebay on the toolbar someone else's account came up. After refresh it didn't help, so logged on again in my id again, and a 2nd someone else's account came up. Anyone know why this is happening?

I don't know why this is happening but I received an email from someone who was able to make a bid with my account when he thought his was logged in as himself. Fortunately he noticed that he was using my account and was able to notify me and the seller that the auction that showed that I won was actually him and not me. I think ebay has a serious problem right now. I have seen other postings with the same problems as yours.

That Ebay "Buy it Now" attempted purchase was probaly me. (Hope you don't shoot the messanger!)

I just sent you an email about this.

I use Compuserve (which is affiliated with AOL). I see some of you use AOL that are having this problem.

I don't know much about these types of things, but does anyone suspect it may be a problem with AOL or Compuserve (such as with their security settings/preferences) rather than a problem with Ebay or the A/S Forum?

DID IT AGAIN!!!

I just went to ebay and clicked on my-ebay and I was immediately taken to the my-ebay page for reconstructor24@

I did not even have to put in a username or password!

I emailed that person to tell them they might be buying things while they sleep.

Anyone on this board have that email name?

Ciao, Brian

Lightbulb ANDY

andy~
I'd like to suggest that:
Remove the Hyperlink to EBAY~
I noticed that you have EBAY HYPERLINKED from this forum to EBAY..Is it possible to ask you to consider removing that "hyperlink" from the home page of airstreamforums.com ??
This could be for a short period of time..
To see if this problem will go away ??
ciao

Thanks,

Andy

Will try, but I have a feeling ebay is very quiet about the problem. After two days, they still haven't replied to my email.
Going to ebay and seeing someone elses login name in your account is one thing, being able to use someone's account is a totally different thing. We are talking about security breach and accounts being compromised.
I changed my passwords with ebay and paypal and removed any sensitive information.

The "reconstructor24" account we both brought up on ebay must be someone on this forum. They are watching an A/S motorhome and a SOB motorhome. Or is bauxiteitis spreading via the www.

Thumbs down Lose the link...we all can get to ebay just fine without it!

I too had another forum member's email address come up in my ebay account login page, just the user name, not the password though. Fortunately, I know who it is and let them know.

I don't use either aol or compuserve, have never used the link from this page and have a different user name & password on ebay than here.

Shari

Send a message via Yahoo to overlander64
Ebay A/S Forums Link

I have had the same experience as Shari. I have never utilized the link from AirstreamForums to E-Bay, but I frequently get one of three different usernames other than my own in the log-in box for "My E-Bay". I have also gone directly to "reconstructor. . . '" My-Ebay page; when this has happened, logging-out, deleting cookies and all other temporary Internet files has soleved the problem temporarily (about 72 hours). I do not have AOL or any of the other major nationwide Internet Service Providers so I am still convinced that it is centralized to E-Bay and their cookies. I have had this happen with three different Internet Service Providers - - WINCO.NET, TDS.NET, and MHTC.NET.

It is a curious, and potentially disturbing security issue for E-Bay. The user name appearing in the login-window doesn't concern me as much as the periodic popping into someone else's "My-E-Bay" page.

Exclamation from the horses mouth

like i said above, it is a BIG ebay problem.
AND they are trying to play it down.
SAFEGUARD YOUR EBAY ACCOUNTS.
REMOVE CREDIT CARD INFO ASAP.

Read my live chat with tech support from ebay and see what happens when I ask the hard question.

Matthew: We are working on each on a case by case basis, as the techs fixed this problem after a short amount of time. Any members with the problem should contact the seller and have the seller contact us

phausmann: why can people access other accounts without a password?

Matthew: There was a temporary glitch in our system where signing in with their user id and password opened another members "My eBay" page. OUr techs have since fixed this, and now we are trying to fix the problems for situation such as yours, where a bid was placed or item was won

phausmann: the glitch still is there as of today

Matthew: It was my understanding the technicians have fixed this, did you have the problem occur again today?

phausmann: I know of someone that did

Matthew: Okay, I just spoke with a tech and they say it is resurfacing now, they are still working on it.

Matthew: There is a post on the announcements board which mentions this situation

phausmann: ok, thank you

Matthew: Thanks for using eBay Live Help and we apologize for the confusion and inconvenience

I am going to add the eBay feature back...

Just and FYI, I know it has nothing to do with my linking method. So I am going to add it back.
