VentureBeat just published my essay about security of Coin and Loop mobile wallet apps
The article is called These new mobile wallet apps will make it easier, not harder, for hackers to hijack your payment card and it's focused on two mobile payment solutions: Coin and Loop. When I started reviewing those technologies and their security features, I noticed that there are potential security vulnerabilities "hidden" in those solutions. The trick is that those vulnerabilities are not threatening directly the consumers or merchants, but they may affect the already weak security of the card payment system itself.
