Not for the first time, a Black Hat presentation ended with a compromised ATM spewing cash on stage. This time, the cash was phony, but it certainly made a point. As ATMs have become ubiquitous, so too have attacks that turn these automated tellers into robotic thieves. At the 2016 Black Hat conference, Rapid7’s Senior Pentester Weton Hecker showed off ways to defeat even the newest ATMs.
ATM attacks are nothing new, especially not at Black Hat where Barnaby Jack’s work is perhaps best known. Scammers have been placing skimmer devices over ATM card readers for years.
