PayPal Blog Hacked and They Dont Even Know?!

I was looking around for a post on the PayPal Blog and look what came up.

The post on Resuming Local Bank Withdrawals to India had this:

What Enlargement? Did they mean.. oops..

Other posts had Movie Download Links, Twitter Tools Links and the like. Some links like the movie download link blend so well into the content.

Looks like someone is drawing out links without taking down any posts so the authors still do not know of this. Or maybe they are selling paid links. Totally in-appropriate.

Time to have a look PayPal!

Update: PayPal have just removed some links, but not all. For instance, the Movie Download link is still in place. Looks like they are selling paid links.

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

    Wow! That’s great! No one is secure… 🙁

    I wonder how hackers are talented enough to break into PayPal’s servers… kudos to them! 8)

  2. Neeraj Kumar says:

    Must be someone who got pissed of by the new rules of Paypal ! 😉

  3. Binoy xavier says:

    This is scary and hilarious. This shows how ignorant they are about their own internal business 🙂

  4. Sriraj says:

    I can’t believe that the movie downloads link is still there?
    Wait, I’ll contact the help and then we’ll see what happens.

  5. Directory submitter says:

    Thats unbelievable. Y do they have to sell links?

  6. Happens with less active corporate blogs may be… Sounds like a SEO hacker lol who is crazy about link building 🙂

    we don’t even know for how long this has remained hacked.

    paypal is one of the best way, to make payments or transfer fund over internet.. by using this you have got a pretty good chance to keep your information secured.. but one must follow certain guide lines to keep themselve more secure against scams.. we know that, No body is perfect and paypal is no Exception…

    I’m sure it’s fixed by now and computers often make mistakes. That’s how it is.

    Computers are being programmed by people and they do what they’re being told to.
    I am so dissappointed by PayPal that I quit. It’s sad, I can never buy something from ebay but it’s ok. For other online transactions I use different prepaid cards which are much safer and harder to get hacked. For example, I use paysafecard for online games like AION and Skype.

      How can you buy stuff online without PayPal? I can’t imagine that. I know they have many flaws, but there’s just nothing better at the moment :/

  11. Fabio says:

    I also hate Paypal, I had a lot of problems with it. And I’ve read in the last days that a Spanish guy has lost 700.000 Euro with Paypal.
    I use the same prepaid voucher like orange, it’s great for Skype and for Facebook games.
    In the last I’ve also tried it in Bwin, it’s very easy… and safe! 🙂

  12. Joshu Thomas says:

    Thats Internet !! 🙂 nice observation !!

  13. ColorSplitter says:

    Sorry for bugging, how can I get this prepaid card and how does it work?
    PayPal is everything but secure these days…
    I’m from Slovenia if that’s important

  14. Paypal Bangladesh says:

    Why people still use paypal? I think they should look for better alternative.
