ATM Hacking

Criminals are always discovering new and ingenious ways to steal money. The most recent caper involves tapping the phone line an ATM machine uses to dial into the bank and recording the communications tones using an MP3 player. Later on, the group was able to decode the audio tones and reconstruct the transmitted data into account numbers and authentication codes whereupon they engaged in a $380K shopping spree.

Other recent ATM hacking schemes were as simple as reading the machine's maintenance manual for codes to switch the machine into a maintenance mode. The culprit then reprogrammed the ATM to dispense $20 bills in place of $5 bills. This past summer, account information was compromised via a non-disclosed method from ATMs at Dollar Store locations with a subsequent theft amounting to more than $700K.
