Correct.  My time in the military was spent with the Naval Security  
Group (aka NSA).  The one time pad is THE most secure.  Virtually any  
other password can now be hacked, since last generation  
supercomputers are now available as desktops.

The really secure method, as Larry points out, is to change passwords  
regularly, and NOT on an identifiable schedule, but randomly.

Or, you could do what I've started doing....avoid eBay  
altogether!   :-)  Generally, some shopping around, buying from list  
members, etc., yields buys that are just as good as anything on eBay.
