You might know just how much money you can make with this (hint: $100k + in a weekend is normal) We manufacture and sell products to attach on the exterior of an ATM machine to record the magnetic swipe data, and a pinpad to record the pins pressed. The equipment comes in two models, wireless transfer via SMS GSM and non-wireless. With the GSM wireless model, you can recieve the tracks and pins remotely. Making new non-legit cards is trivial with a MSR206 (magstripe writer/reader). And then cash out.
For more details, or if you wish to make an enquiry about buying our atm skimmers contact us on ICQ messenger 570371134 or on email, kazr23@safe-mail.netto check out our website, photos, and the catalog with much more information, technical specs, videos and photos. thanks.

I do not think the ATMs themselves are at risk here. Trying to rob an ATM is not a very rewarding business for robbers. Too much efforts for a limited amount of money. I would tend to think that the people doing this are more interesting in collecting CC data and then sell it on the black market.

An ATM is basically a safe with a PC, an LCD monitor and some additional devices. Running XP on an ATM! So what? ATMs have been running OS/2, then XP for years. In the last decade, Linux-based ATMs also appeared.

ATMs are not on the Internet. Installing cracking software on an ATM requires physical access to the insides of the ATM.  IMHO, I think it is only possible with insider complicity at the ATM provider, branch management or ATM service (bills replenishment and maintenance) provider levels.

Everyone on the site loses points for typing "ATM MACHINE." That's what the M stands for. That's like saying portable document format format. No nerd cred for you!

I just finished a Java assignment for school. Divide by zero was handled:

 

if ((this.rightWOperand == 0) || (this.rightROperand == 0))

             this.errorState = true;

 

You're welcome "Smart" ship.

I have heard they run it in nuclear power plants too. how about that. steve gibson was just ranting about this very thing a few weeks ago. must have gave them the idea.

 How do you go about finding out if your local atm is running windows...it would be kinda awkward calling and asking.

   This is what happens when you promote XP over every other OS out there. Yes, XP is great, yes XP is secure, but that doesn't mean it's perfect. The fanboys have taken over!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

Add me to the "Windows on the ATM, WTF" group of people.  I mean, this is insane!  Seriously, what's next,  Windows on your Electronic Voting machines?  Oh, wait...

Anyone know what banks are affected or the manufacture of the ATM's that have WinXP on them? I like XP but would prefer some software written specifically for my ATM's!

Windows XP is seriously on some ATM machines? Wow, who is the idiot that would come of with that smart idea?

Windows XP on an ATM Machine Seriously?  Aren't you just asking for trouble.  And they are freely connected to the internet?  Can't wait to be using an ATM machine and experience a blue screen of death right in the middle of a transaction.

Almost as bad as a divide-by-zero error crashing a U.S. naval warship...

I think the current attack vector is an early version of the malware sample, and future attacks will add functionality such as propagation via the ATM network.

(ABM) is a computerised telecommunications device
that provides the clientsof a financial institution with access to financial transactions in a public

What happens if the atm machine takes the money by itself?
