Hackers also posted few images on Twitter to that confirms that they got access to the control panels for ebay and Paypal. They posted screenshot of MarkMonitor, an online brand-protection company.

Reason behind the attack is the unavailability of services of both companies in Syria. Ebay and paypal do not offer their services in Syria. Hackers also tweeted about this.
