Topic: Heboh Bobolnya ATM Oleh Malware
Thieves are sneaking malware dubbed Tyupkin into ATMs to steal millions of dollars in cold, hard cash, we're told.
The crims don't need to use stolen or cloned cards. Instead, fraudsters infect the ATM's on-board PC, and later type a special combination of digits on the PIN keypad to drain the machine of banknotes – that's according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab.
At the time of the investigation, the malware was active on more than 50 ATMs at banking institutions in Eastern Europe. Based on submissions to VirusTotal, we believe that the malware has spread to several other countries, including the U.S., India and China.
