Payments companies that live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones at Apple. Shortly after Apple rolled out Apple Pay, PayPal bought a full-page ad in the New York Times to attack’s Apple security rep. The problem is that PayPal has similar security issues.
“The tagline of the ad references the so-called Fappening, the release of countless celebrity nudes stolen from Apple’s iCloud servers,” reported Cult of Mac. “It reads: ‘We the people want our money safer than our selfies. PayPal, protecting the people economy.'”
” PayPal has a dubious security record of its own. As Pando Daily notes, PayPal’s two-factor verification was recently shown to be wildly unsafe, and parent company eBay has had its network breached in recent months as well,” the story said.
