Have found out Amazon and ebay are safe. Well keep checking to let you knpow.

Don't go out there and change all of your passwords...find out if the site is compromised and whether it has a new plugin, or your new password could also get stolen...double whammy that one. Internally, the compromised site will also be issud a new certificate - not sure can explain all that, a novice to all this.

There is also another site that you can check for compromise, and I'll back to Frank on that.
