RFID crime has been efficiently demonstrated

Posted by brunson stafford on May 27th, 2018


I came across an older internet tale on RFID contactless credit card crime. In 2015, security researchers were able to wirelessly steal RFID credit card information (e. g., account numbers and expiration dates) from tightly held, unobstructed cards and re-use them to buy large dollar value goods from online vendors.

Professionals everyone two questions:

Can you really commit RFID card scams involving a scenario in which a remote thief wirelessly states information from a victim's RFID card and then successfully commits fraud using that information?


Is there a single example of RFID mastercard criminal offenses committed in real life, involving that same circumstance where RFID shielding may have prevented it?

Starting with the creators of the UK report, since it specifically discussed contactless credit card crime, Specialists how much of the reported? 6. 9 million of contactless fraud was contactless bank cards versus mobile devices? Sadly, we were holding never able to provide an answer, although everyone I discussed to felt that mobile device fraud and other scenarios that did not involve a remote robber with an RFID visitor were much more likely.
