What occurred to me later on is I think Paypal is owned by the same parent company as Ebay. I wonder if they used the same security measures...

Apparently they don't, it's jut Ebay. Ebay employees where compromised and that's what led to the info leak, but paypal has different workers and databases so that information is safe.

(But you are right, they are sister companies, paypal was created after ebay I believe as a way to make payments on ebay and it just kept growing.)
