One question

Q: What do recent breaches at major retailers tell us about the evolution of cyber crime?

A: While the equipment needed to read and write magnetic stripes was a barrier for credit card crime in the past, these resources are now more affordable and accessible …. Memory scraping has become the new trend, but there is no easy way to defend against this technique, as the magnetic stripe information is decrypted at some point in the process. This limitation with magnetic stripe technology and the history of cat-and-mouse between the credit card industry and the criminals tells us that it is time to adopt a new technology, such as EMV or “Chip & Pin.”
