“Fraud protection needs to be improved – it needs to be real-time” – Tech Consultant Chris Green
A new report claims it’s “frighteningly easy" for cybercriminals to get security details for a Visa debit or credit card. According to research published by Newcastle University, fraudsters used a form of "guesswork", called a Distributed Guessing Attack, to work out expiry dates and security code numbers by making multiple invalid attempts. Share Radio’s Matt Cox spoke to tech consultant Chris Green to understand the research better.

Lianna Etkind, executive director of the Campaign for Better Transport discusses rising rail fares
Our rail fares are one of the highest in Europe. A recent study found we spend as much as six times more of our salaries on rail fares than our European counterparts do. We are often overcharged as rail firms do not show the cheapest price on two-thirds of cross-country routes. Well, change might be on the way. Rail firms may now be forced to display its lowest priced ticket on self-service ticket machines. Sarah Pennells spoke to Lianna Etkind about the constant rise of rail fares.
