Shop pin machine service switches to Internet

NRC Handelsblad, Monday 8 November, reports: pin services become cheaper for shops now the service rendered to the shops switches from a secure telecomsline to the Internet.

What does this do to the security of the underlying service? More possibilities for fraud, “man in the middle” installs by cyber criminals on the pin device? If I can think this up, I bet that somebody else is already working on it. Another online incident waiting to happen.
