Isn't it time the keypads were given greater security. I've seen several keypads in other stores that looked a little risky to use, so I paid cash.

The largest US bookseller, Barnes and Noble, says shoppers may have had credit card data stolen after keypads in 63 stores were tampered with.

The chain said that a "sophisticated criminal effort" had planted bugs on one pad in each store.

By 14 September, Barnes and Noble had disconnected all keypads in its almost 700 stores.

The firm says purchases made on its website and on Nook, its e-reader device, were not affected.

Cash is king for in-person purchases. For online purchases there are virtual on-screen keyboards offered through various internet protection suites to guard against keystroke loggers when entering sensitive information.
