ONLINE PAYMENT GIANT Paypal is planning to exclude users of what it considers to be unsafe browsers from accessing its services.
Anyone using browsers like Apple's Safari, which offers no anti phishing protection, will first be warned that their chosen software is unsafe whenever they access the service.
According to Slashdot, if the situation is not resolved by software suppliers, the situation could escalate to an all-out ban.
A statement from the company said, "We are in the process of reimplementing controls which will first warn our customers when logging in to Paypal of those browsers that we consider unsafe. Later, we plan on blocking customers from accessing the site from the most unsafe browsers." µ
