It's an Arms Race .. How you can help
We can decry the inevitability of attacks, but what we can't do is accept that as the norm. It's an Arms Race; the next step is here; waiting to do nothing until a perfect solution presents itself is to commit a nirvana fallacy.

Here's where YOU can make a difference. On November 1st, if your credit card hasn't been updated to PIN & Chip (EMV) technology, vote with your pocketbook and move your credit so somewhere that does.

"Low hanging fruit is the name of the game with hackers that are trying to make money from it."

Low hanging or stumbled apon is where the huge hacks have been, but money is the name of the game even if it's just a Nigerian scam or a few million numbers with expiration dates. Easy money is better, but money is money. If it's MY money I expect it to be secured.

"Good security only really attracts the security curious out there"

And making it harder does make it harder. What is security curious? <heh>

Re: Okay but...
I know what you mean. It can make you feel a bit dispondent about security with how easy it often seems to bypass it. As long as it's difficult though, it should be relatively safe. Low hanging fruit is the name of the game with hackers that are trying to make money from it. Good security only really attracts the security curious out there.

"The goal is to make it harder for attackers to steal card data using POS malware tools like BlackPOS, Dexter, vSkimmer, and Backoff." Sure it will help, but hackers always have an advantage.
