Also, recently I tested Chakra and was impressed by how agile it was on an old machine. I guess it can be attributed to not loading gtk libs in memory at any time, since it just uses KDE/Qt apps (which, btw, makes it unusable to me as I need Firefox due to smartcard needs -- not even Chromium will do).

It's been many years since I used Chakra, so I can't verify how well they work ATM, but while Chakra does thrive to be Qt/KDE-only you can install bundles, which provide Firefox among other things.

I'm saying that if problems with NFC cards would be an even slight issue here, my bank would inform me of it - hell, they always inform me of the latest badly translated phising emails going around which basically no one replies to (and even if they did, the scammers would probably end up with nothing, they'd need to get two one-time codes out of 300 possible, not very likely - but I digress). But they don't. So I'm saying the threats seem to be on the same level.

Right - so if hackers can just sniff this protocol, and with NFC cards being quite common nowadays here in Europe, why aren't we hearing about the widespread abuses? I know there haven't been any erroneous payments on my NFC-enabled card for the ~2 years I've had mine (unless the hackers have also managed to hack my bank statements, those bastards).

What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away.
