Laundry Payment Card Hacked

This article is for educational purposes only, ripping off a poorly created system is still theft. That being said we can learn lots about how not to create a card payment system. Koala from Because life is a hack was curious what made his laundry card payment system work, after cracking open the case he was surprised to see an EEPROM inside. Using a Bus Pirate and a Openbench Logic Sniffer logic analyzer the workings of the system were soon discovered. He can now easily put any value he wants on the card (for testing purposes of course).
