大学生发明防盗银行卡

Advanced credit cards have electronic chips, which are difficult to crack. But many of them also have magnetic strips, so they can be used on older card readers usually in small stores and gas pumps. And that's where they get compromised.

先进的信用卡有电子芯片,也因此很难被破解。但很多信用卡有磁条,所以它们也能在一些小商店和加油站使用,这些地方也因此成为它们无力抵抗被盗的地方。

Credit cards are read using something called a card reader or a read head.All, at any given time only one read head should be present in a card slot.Crooks simply attach their own card readers onto the existing ones.And when a customer inserts the credit card the extra reader retrieves all the information needed to create a perfect copy.

信用卡是用读卡器或读头来读的。在任何给定的时间,只有一个读头应该出现在一个卡槽中。窃贼只是把他们自己的读卡器附在已有的卡片上,当客户插入信用卡时,额外的读取器会检索出能创建完美副本所需的所有信息。

This type of crime is widespread especially in large cities such as New York, where only four detectives are trained to spot extra readers attached to ATMs. Now their task may become easier with a device called the skim Reaper,invented by a group of students at the University of Florida led by Professor Patrick Trainoe."We're glad to be able to produce something that will curb the tide."The device consists of an electronic card about twice as long as the regular credit card attached to a box with a digital display. When inserted in the ATM slot the digital display immediately reveals the presence of an extra card reader.

这种类型的犯罪在纽约这样的大城市尤其普遍,那里只有四名侦探被训练来发现附加在自动取款机上的额外读卡器。现在,他们的任务可能会变得更容易了,因为有一种叫做“Skim Reaper”的设备,由佛罗里达大学的帕特里克·特莱诺教授领导着一群学生发明。我们很高兴能创造出这样一种力挽狂澜的东西。该设备由一张电子卡片组成,它的长度是普通信用卡的两倍。当插入到ATM插槽时,如有不测会立即显示额外读卡器的存在。

Impressed with their technology, in their wise on how to come up with this machine for the tech scheming arouses.The parts for the card reader detector costs about 50 dollars.But its inventors say they're trying to make it cheaper and smaller,so that even untrained law enforcement officers can use it on a daily basis.

他们的技术给我们留下了深刻的印象,他们知道如何用这台机器来设计技术方案。读卡检测器的部件成本约为50美元。但它的发明者说,他们正在努力使它变得更便宜且更小巧,这样即使没有受过训练的执法人员也可以每天使用它。
