Hackers – Hacking ATM’s?
ATM Cash-Out Goes World Wide
The Krebs Cybersecurity blog reported on Sunday of a new threat to the worlds banks.
Hackers are now able to hack bank or payment card processors and use the stolen information to withdraw large sums of cash from ATM’s pretty much everywhere.
Which can be done without the benefit of actual malware.
The FBI shared this information with the banking industry on Friday which they typically do from time to time as cyber threats come about, it’s known as a “private industry alert.”
The FBI is not required to make a public PSA about such cybersecurity threats but with the way Wells Fargo rips off its customers from the inside, one would think that the FBI would at the very least inform consumers of the threat considering that it would take someone like Wells Fargo years to report that customer bank accounts had been wiped out by hackers.
Not to mention refund it, they like to well let’s just say, sit on money.
Just throwing out facts based off of the way certain banks treat their customers.
In the meantime, since the financial industry and the FBI did not send out a warning to consumers, thankfully Brian Krebs did.
