KrebsOnSecurity has a fascinating look at ATM skimmers. After approaching a Russian skimmer “salesperson,” Brian Krebs asked about the latest and greatest in skimmer technology. His recommendation? A GSM-based SMS transfer system that blows out the contents of your card’s magnetic stripe whenever you swipe it. Because it’s inexpensive to build and install, you can even leave it if the feds find out because all the data is safe on your home servers. Get a pre-paid SIM card to grab the SMSes and you’re set! Instant Christmas miracle.
