It’s 2015 and ATMs don’t know when a daughterboard is breaking them
It’s 2015 and ATMs don’t know when a daughterboard is breaking them: Carders have jackpotted an ATM by inserting a circuit board into the USB ports of an ATM, tricking it into spitting out cash.
The technique was thought to have emulated the cash dispenser of the ATM so the brains of the machine thought everything was normal, buying additional time for the brazen crooks to make off with the cash.
A Samsung Galaxy S4 was then used by a remote attacker to issue commands to the dispenser, cybercrime scribe Brian Krebs reported.
NCR global security manager Charlie Harrow said the circuit board gives crime lords control, but the folks who install it are not necessarily the real perps.
