Retailers shot up by PoS scraping brute force cannon


Payment terminals

Over here most shops just have a payment terminal that is connected to the PoS via serial or network, and the software just tells the terminal what amount the customer has to pay.

No way for crooks to steal any data, the worst they could do is send it incorrect amounts. Money always goes from customer to shop bank account.
