La-Z-Boy Credit Application Kiosk Lazyboy

We couldn’t resist stopping in our local La-Z-Boy and trying out the kiosks.

Couple of things we noted:

    • Would have been fairly easy to insert malware USB client onto the PC  and collect credit application info.  I would recommend securing that computer.
    • Looked like it had a hard ethernet so it was likely on the network. Hijacking a Windows computer on a network in order to access the entire network is the next step.
    • Fairly flimsy construction. It looks cheap but that isn’t exactly the best impression to leave on potential customer.
    • The unit was located near back of the store on the other side of browsing. I wonder if having a unit up front to preset potential buyers with an idea of what they can afford easily wouldn’t be a bad idea.

If you would like to get a free Starbucks card send us a message on who did them (software and enclosure).
