Headline : Hackers exploit NFC phone payment technology.

Excerpt from the Link : "Money in pocket
The bugs in the payment system could let attackers get at the contents of a phone
Several bugs in Near Field Communication (NFC) payment systems have been found by security experts.
NFC allows people to pay for goods and services by touching their handset to a payment terminal.
But the inclusion of the technology on phones has proved useful to hackers seeking a stealthy way to take over a mobile phone."


My thoughts :

The manufacturers of software should be employing these hackers to help them keep patching up / keeping ahead of exploits !
