How to lose $22,000 processing credit cards

Post by daleadmin » Fri Jul 22, 2011 10:47 pm

Read this http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 60768.html

City Newsstand is 300 feet from my keyshop. Elsewhere Joe Angelastri stated that by processing credit cards using a telephone dial-up it is almost impossible to hack that because there is nothing to hack and it is not connected to the internet. Something to think about before connecting your POS computer to the internet.

Unless of course you have $22,000 to lose.

In my opinion it was his fault who has the same user name and password to remotely manage a POS computer and the username was pos and password was pos thats what caused the problem you need hard passwords

DHPos allows you to accept credit cards as payment, but does not store the credit card numbers - if there's nothing there to steal = safe.
