PayPal Bug Affects Google Pay Users

Security researchers have discovered a bug in PayPal’s software which can allow an attacker to steal money through Google Pay. The bug seems to only be effective if a user has linked PayPal to Google Pay, but it looks like the flaw is on the PayPal side. Reportedly PayPal is aware and has already taken steps to remediate the issue. PayPal advises any users who have noticed fraudulent transactions to report them immediately.
