How to "earn" your mind: the young hacker managed to reprogram the payment terminal


Irkutsk police detained a 19-year-old student at a Chita university. A young man studying at the Faculty of Information Systems and Management Technologies arrived in Irkutsk to visit a friend.

How to The talented young man did not lose time at a party: with the help of his own computer program, he managed to reprogram the payment terminal at the grocery store, and, after conducting a series of payments, send about 75,000 rubles to different SIM cards.

The guards of the store helped to reveal such a massive scam, which the behavior of the young man seemed suspicious.

According to the State Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Irkutsk Region, a freshman hacker just a few months ago took second place at the All-Russian Olympiad of Computer Science Students.

    Since neither the name of the delayed “hacker” of payment terminals, nor the name of the university in which he is studying, the police call, it is rather difficult to verify the information. But journalists from the InfoSecurity portal tried to do this.

    According to itsec.ru, in the XXV All-Russian Olympiad in Informatics, the last round of which ended in March 2013, 49 pupils of the 11th grade won prizes. Now they can all potentially be freshmen.

    None of the winners at the time of the Olympiad was a resident of either the Irkutsk or the Chita regions, and did not live in the territories of Transbaikalia or the Baikal region. Thus, a talented young man, it seems, came to Chita for knowledge from afar.

But now, having decided to put his knowledge and uncommon abilities into practice, the first-year programmer chose the wrong path, and now a criminal case is planned against him in the near future.
