Possible theft of credit card account numbers from check-in kiosks at Canada’s largest airport in Toronto has led to an investigation by Visa and MasterCard, prompting some airlines to suspend the use of credit cards for check-in at self-service kiosks.  Passengers may still use the kiosks for check-in, but must use frequent flier cards, confirmation codes or passports.  While it is unclear what methods are used to “lift” credit card numbers from the kiosks, investigators believe thieves use the same methods on kiosks as they do on bank ATMs by attaching small skimming devices that record numbers from unsuspecting travelers.  For more information on this, click here and return back to comment.
