I don't buy much on Ebay, but DH does. I did buy something last month and noticed that it went directly to our PayPal account without a login step. I told DH about MissMolly's incident and he said he'd like to unlink our PayPal from our Ebay account. He couldn't find where to do that but I did.
Go to your Ebay account and click the ACCOUNT tab. Under Account Information scroll down to PayPal Account Information and on the right there is a place to "Unlink PayPal account". When I unlinked it there was a message that unlinking will require extra steps when making a purchase.
I'm ok with that. We have our PayPal set to withdraw from our checking account. Fraud activity like MissMolly's would cause a lot of havoc!
