ATM Hacking - Too easy?
« on: September 21, 2006, 07:26:32 AM »
Apparently a guy has reprogrammed an area ATM to think it had $5 bills as opposed to $20's and as such was giving out far more money than it should have. Take a look

There is a news report of it.

Here is a blog for further discussion

Hmmm... either that's a fraud, or somebody is going to get his ass kicked for putting in such a backdoor...

They are supposed to CHANGE the default password.
But still,... allowing access through the standard keypad seems like a terribly bad idea to me. Why don't they have an admin keypad in a locked section of the machine?!
