For those that have used it, Paypal has become probably the most convenient and safest way to buy products and services on the web. But, it appears to have a dark secret. Well, that of course is what security expert Steve Gibson is saying.
On the last episode of "Security Now" (which I recommend you listen to), Steve Gibson out lined how PayPal has been causing its users to go through a page set up by a third party (Doubleclick), as users are going around Paypal's site.
This redirection is particularly concerning, since it is not readily apparent to users of the site and has caused a concern for peoples' privacy. Depending on how far Paypal and Doubleclick's relationship goes, they may have all of PayPal's user information, which includes all of there banking or credit card information.
What ever the case is, it doesn't sound good. So if anyone has a chance, download the last episode of Security Now and comment on what you think it means.
