'Replay' attacks spoof chip card charges


Krebs on Security - (International) Three undisclosed U.S. banks reported receiving fraudulent payment card charges emanating from Brazil that disguise the fraudulent charges as charges using the Europay, MasterCard, and Visa (EMV) chip-and-pin system even though the banks have not yet issued EMV cards. The attacks disguised the charges as originating from EMV cards since some banks with misconfigured systems may not use the full range of security checks on EMV card transactions.
