Re: 96%?
@Dr.T: Because (1) many consumers are still confused about EMV technology and (2) the processing of EMV chips takes much longer than standard swipe-card technology, many retailers have purposely declined to activate their EMV setups so as to keep their business moving more smoothly and more quickly. Even some major retailers purposely delayed their rollouts until such a time as consumers became more used to chip-insertion, letting consumers figure things out and scratch their heads on other retailers' time.

Re: EMV
@Dr.T: Why do you hope this?

What I'm trying to communicate is that EMV is not invulnerable and bears its own vulnerabilty issues and potential exploits. Once you have much more broader penetration of EMV overall, you'll start seeing a greater focus on EMV attacks.

96%?
Nearly all (96%) of US payments in December were done with EMV chip cards. 96% is a surprisingly high. Some of these cards have both magnetic strip and chip, they may still be using swipe.

Re: EMV
Expect this figure to spike back up once there is broader use/acceptance/deployment of EMV tech. That is my hope too, they need to stop providing magnetic cards to speed this adaption.

chip cards
Glad to hear chip card utilization going up in US, we are way behind Europe on this.

EMV
Expect this figure to spike back up once there is broader use/acceptance/deployment of EMV tech. Hackers and attackers go for low-hanging fruit -- but EMV is hardly an impenetrable technology, security-wise.
