Paypal To Block 'Unsafe Browsers' - [internet]
04:50 PM EDT - Apr,18 2008 - post a comment

PayPal announced today that it will block unsafe browsers. Customers will first be warned that a browser is unsafe but could then be blocked if they continue using it.  Paypal said it was "an alarming fact that there is a significant set of users who use very old and vulnerable browsers such as Internet Explorer 4". Phishing attacks trick users into handing over sensitive data. Paypal said some users were still using Internet Explorer 3 , released more than 10 years ago. It lacks many of the security and safety features needed to protect users from phishing and other online attacks.

In other words, PayPal will let you use your 'unsafe browser' for awhile and only block you if you continue using the unsafe browser. Which, with our luck, means you can use the bad browser long enough to deposit money and be blocked once you try to withdraw money.
