Take a good look around before using the ATM

Next time you visit your bank’s ATM, take a closer look at your surroundings, paying special attention to the nice box with pamphlets and the conveniently protruding card reader.

Animated GIF of what looks like a regular ATM with a pamphlet box on the wall next to it. The ATM's card reader has an  additional reader sitting in front of it and the pamphlet box hosts a small wireless webcam powered by a laptop battery, aimed at both the screen and the keyboard.  In combination with the wireless card reader, all necessary information for card fraud can be obtained within range of the wireless network, as long as the batteries last.


Turning a new page

Well, I guess, this is it.  Starting over … the turning of a new page.  For years, I have kept very limited static content up at my old Global Support Services Group, Inc. site, but there was not much life to it.  Rather it was primarily frequented by bots as well as various folks trying to see if the site was vulnerable to a broad range of exploits.  To top things off, my previous web host was rather notorious with regards to not properly protecting their mail servers, resulting in a deluge of spam.

I am still familiarizing myself with WordPress, the blogging software provided by my hosting company, so forgive me if things keep changing for quite a while, as well as for a lack of content posted, yet.
