A war of words has broken out after a security researcher claimed last week that Samsung's contactless mobile payment system is vulnerable to skimming and spoofing attacks.
In talks at both the Black Hat and DEF CON security conferences, held last week in Las Vegas, Salvador Mendoza claimed that he was able to intercept a Samsung Pay token transmitted over the air using a gizmo hidden under his shirt cuff.

You should be scared, even though police departments everywhere and every government agency already has this capability.
