I use a credit/debit card online. But when I’m in a physical store, except in rare cases, I use cash. This is one of the reasons why:
Clothing store chain Eddie Bauer said today it has detected and removed malicious software from point-of-sale systems at all of its 350+ stores in North America, and that credit and debit cards used at those stores during the first six months of 2016 may have been compromised in the breach.
I work in security and POS systems are one of the things we watch and worry about a lot.
