Chartered accountant Richard Murphy said: eBay say I must reset my password. When I try to they say that’s not possible because too many people are trying to reset their passwords. Twitter user TweetieKaz wrote: Went to eBay to change my password but couldn’t due to traffic… I hope I can get that done soon. As the Mirror reported on Wednesday, the online market place was attacked by cyber crooks in late February and early March, but eBay said it only became aware of the breach earlier in May. It said mountains of data had to be sifted before it could let its 223 million registered users know. User names, encrypted passwords, email addresses, dates of birth, addresses and phone numbers were all illegally accessed but the company moved to reassure customers no financial information was compromised. eBay also told customers to change log-in details on other websites where they use the same password. British security expert Graham Cluley described eBays handling of the problem as slipshod.

The fact that so few people with GAD receive treatment suggests that many are self-medicating. While there is a high rate of comorbidity (GAD and substance abuse occurring together) typically the GAD was present before the addiction. There is very little evidence of GAD being induced by substance abuse. Typically those suffering from GAD and other anxiety disorders have low self-esteem, which is a factor in substance abuse. There is a high level among GAD sufferers to abuse prescription drugs. Many build up a tolerance to some of the drugs they have been given to treat the physical symptoms, leading them to visit multiple doctors for prescriptions.

Treatment GAD can be difficult to diagnose, because it is the symptoms, such as sleeplessness or headache, that cause someone to seek medical attention.
