WATCH: Techies show how to buy a MacBook for $1.30

Apple products are known to be quite expensive, especially MacBooks.

But security researchers discovered a way to get the price down to as low as US$1 (S$1.30).

The researchers who discovered the hack work for a software security company called ERPScan.

They claim this security hole as usable on SAP point-of-sale (POS) machines.

The statement published on ERPScan's website said that the method exploited missing security checks in a SAP POS Xpress server.

Once a tool like a Raspberry Pi computer has been connected to a POS device, hackers can get to work remotely through the internet to change prices as they wish.

Fortunately, a patch for these SAP POS machines have been made available since August 21.

They advised retailers to quickly update their SAP POS solutions.
