Chip & Pin hack steals Tesco shopper' details

A Computer Weekly reader whose credit card was cloned after she used it in Tesco, was told by her bank that new chip & PIN readers were being hacked at the point of manufacture, before they even arrived at the store.

 

First Direct’s anti-fraud office told her that cloned readers weighed three ounces more than the standard reader. We believe customers at Sainsbury’s have also been targetted.
