PayPal Hits Apple Pay On Full Page Of New York Times

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.
