Someone is screwing with my auction that is presently on Ebay. There has been over 10,000 hits today alone and it is continuing to climb! Why would a jerk off hacker do such a thing? I exceeded my 10 gig bandwidth today alone and normally 10 gigs lasts a month. There's no way they are real hits. Do you think it is some no-life hacker or is it possible it is a glitch of some sort?? :bigal

Trying to crack your password(s) with some hacker software?

Happened to a friend recently, so check your firewall and PC defenses, and check your bank accounts for unauthorized activity.

I'd change your password(s) too...

I.m not saying publicize your auction, but without knowing anything else this is pretty much useless speculation.
maybe this is a hot item ( ok, probably not), maybe it's on a blog somewhere, maybe you pissed someone off, etc,etc.

If you have not already done so, it may be worth advising Ebay as well..... They responded quickly when I had a 'phisher' a while ago.

A friend just got his 'ebay store' hacked into & now things are tied up until it gets sorted out.
Hope they're not after you too.
