Jean as an anti-hacking device, you have gotta be kidding, right! No, internet clothing manufacturing firm, Betabrand does not think so. It has partnered with popular anti-virus makers, Norton Anti-Virus to make trousers that make it hard for hackers to penetrate through to your Payment cards or RFID based identifying devices.

The good news is that Betrabrand has succeeded in manufacturing a Jeans trouser which can stop any cyber criminal from accessing details to your payment cards or RFID based devices like Passports without your knowledge, if you wear it.

The Betabrands Jeans work by using a silver- based material in the pockets that act to block signals. If you are wearing Betabrands manufactured Jeans, the cybercriminals cant hack into your payment cards details or RFID based devices like a Passport.

I think this is going to become a serious issue in the near future.

 

 

Visa payWave is the latest in secure, contactless technology. It will help you spend less time at the register and give you the freedom to do the things that matter most to you.

In the near future.

Build or buy one of the terminals, set it to bill everybody $ 14.99 from Joe's Delli ( Most people wont even remember if they went to Joe's Delli almost a month ago that's if they even check their bank statement  )  Then get on a crowded train, bus, walk from 1 end to the other and you have just stolen thousands of dollars. Go to a  ATM and withdraw cash.

Effectively this is going to be the same as a lead-lined wallet. Not sure why you would want Jeans to do this when you could just shield the card/rfid things themselves rather than carrying around un-neccessary shielding along the full length of your leg.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
