FTC slams ControlScan

I wrote about this a while back, but it seems like others are taking note:

“The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Thursday (Feb. 25) screamed “the Emperor has no clothes” by reporting to consumers that one of the largest firms issuing “Verified Secure Breach Protection” seals doesn’t really verify much at all. The practical impact of the ruling for E-Commerce sites is unclear, both because the FTC has little authority to enforce its rulings and because consumers have typically been impressively apathetic about security and privacy issues.”
