Just to revisit this, this is going round all the computer/IT nerd forums at the moment showing how easy it is for a completely normal (looking) restaurant terminal to store cards/pins and let them be downloaded later sigh.... have a look at this (seems cash may really be the only way to go)Originally Posted by Dawn, post: 319427, member: 32
In a video demonstrating a tampered sales terminal, a card is swiped through the handheld device and a PIN entered - just as any customer would in a restaurant or shop. Later, after a series of key-presses, the data is transferred to a laptop via a serial cable.
Account numbers and other sensitive information appear on the computer screen, ready to be exploited. And the data can be texted to a phone, if a SIM card is fitted to the handheld.
