Privacy Service was keeping users from auction site...Security company McAfee has released a patch to fix a glitch that prevented some users of its privacy software from accessing auction site eBay.
Privacy Service is a set of tools intended to protect information stored on a PC from being exploited over the internet. The software blocks cookies and advertising pop-ups and allows parents to block access to sites inappropriate for children.
Kazarian said the eBay glitch only affected a small minority of Privacy Service users, making it more difficult to isolate the problem. She said McAfee engineers were doing final testing on the patch Friday and expected to have it available for download from McAfee's website late in the day.
An eBay representative could not be reached for comment.
