lol, access to ATMs is surprisingly easy...

I saw an ATM crash to the windows desktop once, at which point i could use the touchscreen as a normal PC interface. I was able to start a command prompt, and was looking for the virtual keyboard to type "ipconfig", and then it was taken over remotely

I work for IBM and fix cash machines and other in branch machines for HSBC/Abbey around the Midlands area mainly Birmingham , We have seen a vast rise in skimming devices and they are getting harder and harder to recognise , entire front panel covers are being made and they are very hard to spot , same paint , same facia parts eg card reader lips etc even stickers , so my advice is have a poke around before you use them ps and we seem to think that someone with ATM knowledge could be doing this

Even proprietary software may have been coded in India or Eastern Europe, due to outsourcing. Neither regions have the best reputation for security.

It gets worse: Most ATMs use Win98, and I've personally seen some using Win95.
But then it gets better: I've also seen several running BSD.

Software and even full system HDD images from various ATMs circle around the net all the time, it's easy to find and buy one if you know where to look.

Also a lot of ATMs use OS/2 (renamed eComStation) as it was a very reliable operating system.

i wish all ATM's were Unix based. Microsoft OS's seem to be a little excessive for an ATM, someone got rich!
