NFC Security Risk & Countermeasures
Eavesdropping: The range of NFC is a few centimeters, but Radio Electronics reports that the signal can be received up to 10 meters.

Data corruption: You can detect this when the electric power needed to transmit the signal is increased.

Man-in-the-Middle: If someone can get between, say, the digital wallet and the POS cash register they could intercept the signal, decrypt it to read it, encrypt it again, and send it on its way so that no one knows it was hacked.

This feature in iOS 7 makes it more difficult for anyone to use or sell your iPhone once it’s gone missing. It starts working the moment you turn on Find My iPhone in iOS 7. Turning off Find My iPhone or erasing your device requires your Apple ID and password. And your Apple ID and password are required before anyone can reactivate it.

Remote Erase.
If you’re worried that your device has fallen into the wrong hands, you may want to initiate a remote wipe to delete your personal data and restore your iPhone to its factory settings. With iOS 7, Find My iPhone can continue to display your custom message, even after your device has been erased. And if you do retrieve your device, you can restore it from your iCloud backup.

The attack worked by infecting victims’ PCs and mobiles with a modified version of the Zeus Trojan.
When victims attempted online bank transactions, the process was intercepted by the Trojan.
Under the guise of upgrading the online banking software, victims were duped into giving additional information including their mobile phone number, infecting the mobile device.
With victims’ PCs and mobile devices compromised, the attackers could intercept and hijack all the victims’ banking transactions, including the key to completing the transaction: the bank’s SMS to the customer containing the ‘transaction authentication number’ (TAN).
With the account number, password, and TAN, the attackers were able to stealthily transfer funds out of victims’ accounts while victims were left with the impression that their transaction had completed successfully.
