But, in the interest of providing a resource for information regarding/relevant to eCommerce security, (with a few plugs about HomeATM along the way) I am pleased to announce that the PIN Payments HomeATM blog has reached a relatively notable milestone, as we surpassed the 250,000 unique viewer plateau over the weekend.
In addition to PIN based payments, the blog has continued to strive to include the widest variety of information regarding ongoing and emerging threats to online commerce, including but not limited to; hacking, malware, man-in-the-middle attacks, breaches, phishing, war driving, card cloning and more.
Speaking about "sardonic undertones" HomeATM CEO Ken Magessays that Frank (me) has been more than a bit controversial...which has oftencaused him to explain John's unique sense of dry humor but Magesiterates that, "I wouldn't trade John for anybody blogging or using Web2.0 marketing on the Internet today." (Wow!...those are extremely kindwords coming from our CEO...plus it's nice to know that I have a no-tradeclause! :-)
Getting back to some of the circumstances behind my sarcasm, when an alternative payment emerges, which I feel is riddled with security flaws, and it gains momentum, or garners praise from the media and/or supposed "analysts" I feel I have a responsibility to point out the flaws. So that's what I do. I ask the questions they don't.
