After this weeks hysterical outpouring over the Android app that can “steal” your contactless card data (?), we see a re-surface of Mr FUD himself, Walt August from IDStronghold. This time it’s mobile phones that are the target. the blurb that accompanies this video reads as;
“Hackers can now attack your smart phone and use it to scan the credit cards in your pocket. Watch the news report on how it is done. You need to block your credit cards from scanning with a Secure Wallet or Secure Sleeve from Identity Stronghold at IDStronghold.com”
There’s no ‘real’ story here (at least what we haven’t heard a thousand times before) and to be honest we’re not saying anything bad about IDStrongholds products, but we do think that allowing each TV station to make a scare-mongering story out this each time is questionable marketing.
What do YOU think?
