Romania hacks PayPal and joins the EU

CATEGORY: News

Romania joins the European Union as a full-fledged member today and gains the same status as the other member states. PayPal however continues to block Romanian IP addresses and fraud prevention rules mean a single login from a ‘prohibited’ country causes a PayPal account to go into a restricted mode.

This was irksome for Sagewing Corporation whose technical team that integrate Joomla and Paypal is based in Romania. When working on a client account a single test logon would limit the account! Still, no problem – they just hacked a solution by using Windows Virtual Private Server and their techies log onto the server using Remote Desktop thus appearing as if they’re based in a different company.

If it’s that easy for a legitimate technical team to get around PayPal fraud controls I can’t see other hackers having too many problems!
