Follow the money...

In reply to: Stealing pin codes with iPhone

In every way possible if money can be gotten for some effort that practically allows you to sit on your kisker, then people will do it. I tend to check the CC reader at gas pumps and any where I use the CC in order to defend myself. It doesn't take much to place some fake cover reader on top of the reg. reader. As any IPad or wifi sniffling, that too can be done. I'm not into this but if anyone that follows hacks or forums that allow info to exchange freely tends to give this type of info away. I recall as a college student the times someone found a way to beat the candy machine or override the security door, yada, yada and so it goes for more modern stuff. ------Willy Happy I like Snickers
