The Latest, And Biggest And Most Pointless, QR Code Ever. And It’s Carved Into A Cornfield

So you think your team has difficulty making your QR codes work? Try making a QR code out of corn stalks. In one of the more bizarre—and pointless, which is what makes it fun—QR codes we’ve run into, an Alberta, Canada, farmer has created what the Guinness

Book of World Records has concluded is the world’s largest QR code. It’s cut into a cornfield and only visible by a mobile-phone-carrying helicopter pilot. The QR code was verified at 28,760 meters, according to Guinness spokesperson Sara Wilcox.

One of the farmers, Rachel Kraay, said they had some IT lawnmower work to do when the code

So then we got in there with the Rototiller and dug up the paths real nice and dark and the second time we went up, it scanned right away.” The next time your CFO gives you a hard time in establishing an ROI for a QR code campaign, it’s comforting to realize that it could be a lot worse.

Why Did Gonzales Hackers Like European Cards So Much Better?

I am still unclear about the core point here-- why higher value of European cards. Supply and demand, yes, makes sense. But the fact that the cards were chip and pin (EMV) should make them less valuable because that demonstrably reduces the ability to use them fraudulently. Did the author mean that the chip and pin cards could be used in a country where EMV is not implemented--the US--and this mis-match make it easier to us them since the issuing banks may not have as robust anti-fraud controls as non-EMV banks because they assumed EMV would do the fraud prevention for them Read more...
Two possible reasons that I can think of and have seen in the past - 1) Cards issued by European banks when used online cross border don't usually support AVS checks. So, when a European card is used with a billing address that's in the US, an ecom merchant wouldn't necessarily know that the shipping zip code doesn't match the billing code. 2) Also, in offline chip countries the card determines whether or not a transaction is approved, not the issuer. In my experience, European issuers haven't developed the same checks on authorization requests as US issuers. So, these cards might be more valuable because they are more likely to get approved.

A smart card slot in terminals doesn't mean there is a reader or that the reader is activated. Then, activated reader or not, the U.S. processors don't have apps certified or ready to load into those terminals to accept and process smart card transactions just yet. Don't get your card(t) before the terminal (horse). Read more...
The marketplace does speak. More fraud capacity translates to higher value for the stolen data. Because nearly 100% of all US transactions are authorized online in real time, we have less fraud regardless of whether the card is Magstripe only or chip and PIn. Hence, $10 prices for US cards vs $25 for the European counterparts. Read more...
@David True. The European cards have both an EMV chip AND a mag stripe. Europeans may generally use the chip for their transactions, but the insecure stripe remains vulnerable to skimming, whether it be from a false front on an ATM or a dishonest waiter with a handheld skimmer. If their stripe is skimmed, the track data can still be cloned and used fraudulently in the United States. If European banks only detect fraud from 9-5 GMT, that might explain why American criminals prefer them over American bank issued cards, who have fraud detection in place 24x7. Read more...
