Is that a graphics driver on your shop's register – or a RAM-slurping bank card thief?

Re: So use ApplePay

Using ApplePay or Google Wallet or whatever would have at least two upsides:

1 if the bad guys divert the payment to themselves, there's at least some chance that the diversion can be tracked, leading to them. (It depends on how the money was diverted and how quickly someone noticed.)

2 the lack of incoming funds should quickly alert management, and should (depending on how bright management is. Oh. Wait. Errmm...) result in someone taking active measures to improve security. (Well, it could happen... Money talks. Loudly.)
