Hi,

Just in case you're not aware, earlier this week it was revealed that clicking on links in some eBay listings automatically redirects you to malicious websites (Link hidden: Login to view).

To avoid possible malicious links when browsing on eBay, hover your mouse pointer over the Buy It Now button. Next, look at the URL preview in the status bar (view captured screen below).

Be safe shopping.

I found Link hidden: Login to view from September 18th and it includes a video. It shows how clicking on an ad after performing a search, redirects you to a malicious website.

Just something else to be aware of when searching for items on eBay so that you don't become a victim.
