PIN numbers and ATM machines in the same article... Shame on toms hardware editors...
And yet another moron. The PIN can be used to easily take money out of an ATM. There is more than video on youtube of someone using something as innocuous as a prepaid phone card to program as a debit card to withdraw money from an ATM. With the PIN number it wouldn't take long to clean out an account.
Now for those who don't know STORING the PIN numbers is a major PCI compliance violation, for the very obvious reasons here. No merchant is ever allowed to store the PIN number or the CVV/CVN number on the back of your card. If the Payment Processing Industry is serious about security they'll ban Target from accepting their debit/credit cards. I'm interested to see what happens here.
