PayPal and the National Cyber Security Alliance unveiled the results from a new Zogby Poll highlighting the latest trends, concerns and misperceptions around mobile security and commerce.
The APWG is reporting in its latest Global Phishing Survey: Trends and Domain Name Use study that an increasing number of brands and their users have been targeted by phishers.
MailPile, the open-source web-mail client with user-friendly encryption that has proved to be a hit with the Indiegogo crowd, has been slapped with some bad news: PayPal has frozen the project's PayPal account, and therefore blocked their access to roughly $45,000 of the $135,000 they have raised.
PayPal customers are being targeted with a fake email impersonating the e-payment service, claiming that their account has been put "on hold" and will stay that way until they reset their password: More experienced users will likely identify the email as malicious and consider it a phishing attempt, but it's not.
A new email spam campaign targeting PayPal users is under way.
