+ - This telephone bug stole PINs from inside a bank->

Submitted by mask.of.sanity
mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "This telephone bug was found attached to a phone line inside one of Australia's biggest banks.
The device, attached by a cleaner, was listening to dial tones as unwitting consumers keyed in PIN numbers at the teller.
It broadcast the tones over a radio frequency to a laptop outside, while a card skimmer recorded credit and debit numbers."
