Paypal hands over 1,000 IP addresses of Anonymous attackers

Posted in Paypal by Conner Flynn on July 31st, 2011

Remember when Anonymous had a beef against Paypal last year for freezing Wikileaks‘ account and launched DDoS attacks against the billing and payment company? Well, some of the attackers have left behind enough information to be traceable. And now Paypal has handed over a list of 1,000 IP addresses to the FBI.

There’s no way to know whether the list of IP addresses are just a dump of attacking systems or whether Paypal’s investigation actually turned up some indication that these thousand IP addresses were orchestrating the attack. They have alluded to the notion that the addresses they handed over are some of the IPs that sent the most data.

Well if PayPal is the modern way we use money then we are going to need new vending machines. This PayPal vending machine on exhibit at the PayPal X Innovate 2010 developers conference was spotted by Adam Flaherty over at the MAKE website.

The prototype was designed by Ray Tanaka and his team from PayPalLabs using a mechanical candy dispenser, a couple of Arduino Duemilanove, a WiShield, relay, proximity sensor, and LED display. Today gumballs and maybe soon you might be buying sodas and who knows what else from a PayPal vending machine.

PayPal looking to replace Credit Cards in stores

PayPal is already the king of digital money transactions on the Internet and now it is looking to broaden its market by taking on the credit card merchants in stores. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Paypal president Scott Thompson called the initiative a “top priority” and said “The tide is coming in and we will take advantage of that,”

With its 220 million active users PayPal is now looking to remove cards and the middle man completely and create a payment gateway that powers the point-of-sale itself.

PayPal offers in-app payments for Android

Posted in Paypal by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2010

PayPal just launched its Mobile Payments Library for the Android OS, allowing developers to include in-app payments into their software without having to worry about keeping customers’ personal financial information secure. This means that soon you’ll be able to make PayPal transactions on your Android device without having to leave the application that you’re using.

This is pretty convenient for Android users. You can even purchase a pizza using PayPal as illustrated in the image above. But does this in-app PayPal payment method violate the Android Market Content Policy for Developers? It states that “developers should only charge for applications and downloads from Android Market through the Market’s Payment Processor”.
