Apple Pay bug lets hackers remotely spend your money — even if your iPhone is locked

A nasty Apple Pay bug, if exploited, gives hackers access to iPhone users’ Visa cards, allowing them to make remote financial transactions using the victim’s money. Even if one’s phone is locked, malicious actors can still take advantage of this Apple Pay flaw.

Researchers at the University of Birmingham and the University of Surrey approached Visa with their findings, but the credit-card giant snubbed the investigation, concluding that the complex hack is too “impractical” to be concerned about (via BBC).
