Android App scans and records DoD Combined Access Cards

COMNAVSURFLANT Has issued a security advisory:


#SCAM Alert 

CAC Scam – An app has been developed called “CAC Scan” – available at the Google Play store – that has the ability to scan the barcode on the front of the common access card (CAC). This barcode contains personally identifiable information (PII) of the card holder. Remember to remove your CAC from the computer when leaving your desk. If you use public transportation, ensure your CAC is secured and out of sight. Always remain vigilant and aware of non-government entities that request your CAC. –
