Cybercrooks and Crimeware Expanding; Lawsuits to Follow
Cybercrooks continue to find new ways to steal. One new scam involves stealing ash card IDs through ATMs at busy hotels. The crooks bribe cash station technicians for access inside a machine, and implant a device that reads the card information and communicates it out through wifi or Blue tooth. Crimeware continues to expand. No doubt we soon will see class actions against hotels and other places that have ATMs on site, and that allegedly did not do enough to stop the crooks. They in turn no doubt will sue the cash station operator. For all the specifics, see a September 9, 2015 post at Krebs on Security.
Maybe we all will end up going back to Traveler’s Checks from AMEX? (humor intended).
