+ - Popular smartphone and free app used to get data from chip-enabled credit cards.->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "CBC is reporting: Using a Samsung Galaxy SIII — one of the most popular smartphones available in Canada — and a free app downloaded from the Google Play store, CBC was able to read information such as a card number, expiry date and cardholder name simply holding the smartphone over a debit or credit card. And it could be done through wallets, pockets and purses."
