Tyrupkin Cash Machine Hack 'dispenses Wads'

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-29537907

A flaw in cash machines that allows criminals to quickly steal wads of cash has been discovered.

Interpol has alerted countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia known to have been targeted - and is carrying out a widespread investigation.

Security firm Kaspersky Labs discovered the hack, which is enabled by entering a series of digits on the keypad.

Infected cash machines can be instructed to dispense 40 notes at once, without a credit or debit card.

Not quite as powerful as the central bank hack which magics billions of pounds/dollars/euro's out of thin air. Kaspersky need to investigate.

It sounds like a possible explanation for the phantom withdrawals thing that some people were reported to be having on their accounts not so long ago.

If the banks were losing money through the "hack" then being the banks they would likely try to get it back somehow even if it meant allocating the loss to the accounts of those not responsible.
