The eBay owned popular digital payment and money transfer service, PayPal has been found to be vulnerable to a critical web application vulnerability that could allow an attacker to take control over users' PayPal account with just a click, affecting more than 156 millions PayPal users.
An Egyptian security researcher, Yasser H. Ali has discovered three critical vulnerabilities in PayPal website including CSRF, Auth token bypass and Resetting the security question, which could be used by cybercriminals in the targeted attacks.
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF or XSRF) is a method of attacking a website in which an attacker need to convince the victim to click on a specially crafted HTML exploit page that will make a request to the vulnerable website on their behalf.
Hacking PayPal Account with Just a Click


I prefer a prepaid Visa card attached to my Paypal, There is no way I would tie my Paypal account to my bank account.  It may be a slight inconvenience to have to go to a Post office to put some money on the card when I need it, But how much of an inconvenience is it if your bank account is cleaned out.


Australian Residents, Australia Post offers a Load and Go Visa card, I have been using one for almost 2 years without issue.
