Hi all,
There have been plenty of cases recently of modded EFTPOS machines being
used to skim card info. However, I'm wondering if there have been any cases
of attackers using a connected POS machine to harvest data from the EFTPOS

That is, have there been documented instances of vulnerable POS machines
being used to stage attacks against the EFTPOS transaction?

I don't even know if this is possible(at least not on machines which do not
store cardholder data).
