This is a good enough reason to stay away from NFC. Having money in your mobile is just plain dumb. I hope they can figure out a solution. Wouldnt like my calls listened to (not that I talk about anything dodgy anyway)

Don't use a phone that has a SIM card, e.g. stick with Verizon

More seriously the BBC article is 1 years old. If this "vulnerability" was being exploited widely then surely we'd have seem more stories about it since then.


Phones: OnePlus 5 Nexus 5
SIMs: CA Fido/Fongo AT A1-B.free
R.I.P.: UM UM+
