Please Replace those old MSR's!!!

More security breaches over the last couple of months. This time involving Snoney's and GameStop.

For the sake of your business and your customers, please replace those old Mag Stripe Readers (MSR's) that read card data and transmit it through the POS system. It is very easy to intercept credit card information with these devices. If you don't believe me, open up MS Word, NotePad or WordPad and swipe a credit or debit card. If you can see the actual card information in any of these word processing programs then you have outdated equipment that needs to be replaced ASAP.

Depending on which POS software program you use, there are plenty of hardware and software upgrades available like Card Defender.
