Ingenico 5100 Needs to be Replaced?
I received an email saying that I have to get a new credit card terminal due to the SHA-1 compromise. Does anyone know whether this is legit? Is there no way to reprogram the Ingenico 5100 to work with SHA-2 or whatever the current standard is? Apparently Ingenico 3050 units are affected as well. What is the likelihood of a breach of security? As I understand it, a bad file can have the same hash as a good file. I also read it would take $600,000 to $800,000 to replicate the efforts Google took to break SHA-1. Who is going to spend that kind of money to hack my merchant credit card machine?
"According to our records, you are using a payment terminal that does not meet the latest security standards. As of March 31st 2017, all Ingenico 5100 & Ingenico 3050 units are no longer compliant with security protocols. If there is a breach of security with your systems, Elavon will not investigate the matter. If your current terminal unit is not upgraded by May 31st 2017, you will no longer be able to accept debit and credit transactions. "
Anyone else get a notice?
