£500 device can hack hundreds of contactless cards

A device that allows criminals to clone contactless bank cards in bulk is up for sale on the so-called dark web.

The Contactless Infusion X5 can steal information from nearby cards, including the card number and the card holder’s name and address.

This information can then be loaded onto blank cards to create clones that can be used to empty the victim’s account.

The device is believed to be the first to specifically target contactless cards
