Pay Pal’s Security Questioned, Yet Again

This time it’s demonstrably, as you can see here, although as the article is careful to point out the weakness hasn’t been successfully used as yet.  (Then again, over the years there have been at least 50 eBay stories I’ve happened upon that somehow never hit the major press.)

 

I’m also going to correct something I said recently.  Spybot S & D evidently no longer measures up, as shown by some recent reputable reviews.   If you use ZoneAlarm and AVG you’re pretty well covered; I’m actually using RuBotted to cover for rootkits (note this is a beta and not for the faint of heart) and then a suite.
