Checkout Skimmers Powered by Chip Cards


Checkout Skimmers Powered by Chip Cards
| #TpromoCom #Skimmers #CreditCard | Easily the most sophisticated skimming devices made for hacking terminals at retail self-checkout lanes are a new breed of PIN pad overlay combined with a flexible, paper-thin device that fits inside the terminal’s chip reader slot. http://bit.ly/3usAhUe

What enables these skimmers to be so slim? They draw their power from the low-voltage current that gets triggered when a chip-based card is inserted. As a result, they do not require external batteries, and can remain in operation indefinitely.

The overlay skimming device pictured above consists of two main components. The one on top is a regular PIN pad overlay designed to record keypresses when a customer enters their debit card PIN. The overlay includes a microcontroller and a small data storage unit (bottom left).

POLICE INCREASING PATROLS, VISIBILITY DURING HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON


POLICE INCREASING PATROLS, VISIBILITY DURING HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON | #TpromoCom #Police #SituationalAwareness #Security | The Jackson Police Department will roll out Operation Safe Shop starting Thanksgiving and continuing through New Year’s, said Sam Brown, public information officer for the department.

“We deploy extra patrol officers to parking lots of shopping areas in northeast Jackson and south Jackson,” he said. “We’ll have patrol officers in parking lots in marked units with blue lights flashing. The shoppers feel safe when they see the police cars and the criminals will wait, wait, wait.”

"This is where outdoor video surveillance can help as well," says Al Colombo with Security eNews. "A combination of police presence and a quality video system should be enough to discourage criminals altogether."
