Over the last week we have been hearing about a couple of security flaws discovered in Google Wallet, on Monday Google announced that they would be removing the provisioning of pre-paid cards for Google Wallet.
Google has now re-enabled prepaid cards on Google Wallet and has issued a security update to address the security flaws that were discovered in Google Wallet.
Yesterday afternoon, we restored the ability to issue new prepaid cards to the Wallet. In addition, we issued a fix that prevents an existing prepaid card from being re-provisioned to another user. While we’re not aware of any abuse of prepaid cards or the Wallet PIN resulting from these recent reports, we took this step as a precaution to ensure the security of our Wallet customers. If you are unable to access your previous prepaid card balance for any reason, please contact our toll-free support for assistance.
You can find out full information on what Google has done to ensure that the security flaws have been fixed over at the Google Commerce blog.
