Grrrr. Out, damned spot! I just finished explaining in post #43 above this, that nobody has hacked NFC, and definitely nobody has hacked NFC payments. The exploit in that article was aimed at a document viewer application, not NFC. Sending the document via SMS or email would've also worked. As they put it, "We used the NFC method for showmanship," Apparently Mythbusters was testing against an optical fingerprint sensor, which are very easy to fool.
