What the FUD is wrong with news outlets these days? Sheeh, even some security researchers from “Aperture Labs” (yeah, seriously that’s their name) got involved and PRESENTED at a security conference about it.
I realize, these are some older articles, but having noticed a Google search term “apple square card reader hack” hit my site, I did some googling around for new news. What I found out disgusted me. We have researchers presenting that these things are insecure, and that they’ve totally hacked the system… That’s like saying “Hey, check this out! If I have a credit card, I can charge things to it!!! I’m going to present at a security conference about it now”
See my previous article for more ranting… and a lot more technical explanation of the “issue”
