Why "Verified By Visa" System Is Insecure 243

angry tapir writes "A widely deployed system intended to reduce on-line payment card fraud is fraught with security problems, according to University of Cambridge researchers. The system is called 3-D Secure (3DS) but is better known under the names Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. Steven J. Murdoch, a security researcher at the University of Cambridge, and security engineering professor Ross Anderson contend there are several flaws with 3DS. One of their main points is how 3DS is integrated into Web sites during a transaction — e-Commerce Web sites display 3DS in an iframe."

I think you mean Aladdin 3, Robin Williams passed on 2 and they used Dan Castellaneta. Williams agreed to do Aladdin at Union Scale Rates on the provision that his voice not be used for merchandising and that the Genie not take up more than 25% of the space in any advertisements. Long story short, Disney ignored that, Williams refused to do the 2nd movie or the TV show, some people at Disney got fired, public appologies were made, and Williams came back to do the 3rd movie (Which was already completely voiced by Dan Castellaneta, but they threw that out once Robin Williams decided to return).
