I agree RISC, security should be a high priority for everyone. I’ve had a plain cashline card (nobody sees it in shops or anything coz it wasn’t even switch), as I was at home (in Glasgow) someone in Bradford emptied my account over the course of a few nights!!! After 3 weeks the bank refunded my money refusing to offer an explanation. As for VISA fraud, a friend of mine does this on a daily basis. It is really easy coz his girl works in a shop collecting card details all day.
Anyway, here is the device which the above article refers to http://slashdot.org/yro/99/11/08/093250.shtml
It is based on the Van Eck device. All the security agencies are aware of these devices and most are protected against such “attacks” http://www.eskimo.com/~joelm/tempest.html
