Submission + - Researchers demo hack against African micro-finance accounts (scmagazine.com.au)

mask.of.sanity writes: Security researchers have shown how to raid Africa micro-finance bank accounts en masse using fake audio one time passwords.

Crucially the researchers did not reveal how they cracked the encryption in order to protect users.

This discussion was created for logged-in users only, but now has been archived. No new comments can be posted.
