David : 20minATM
A new article surfaced on my feed. The article raises awareness of the security flaws with ATMs. Surprisingly, the attacks do not take much time as expected. An alarming percentage of ATMs allowed an attacker to have access to its network. Many of these attacks used different spoofing methods to gain access. Physical attacks were also implemented to gain different access. In the end, several of the attacks allowed cash to be dispensed on command.
An alarming amount of the attacks were successful. According to experts, they said, "that 85 percent of the ATMs they tested allowed the attacker access to the network" (Cimpanu, 2019, p. 1). The experts said that the usual attack took under 15 minutes to complete. Attackers could also target other network devices connected to the same network. Gaining access to the network is usually the slower approach. There was a faster method called Black Box attacks. This attack "is when a hacker either opens the ATM case or drills a hole in it to reach the cable connecting the ATM's computer to the ATM's cash box" (Cimpanu, 2019, p. 1). From this point, the attacker could attach a tool to tricking the ATM to dispense money when prompted.
In conclusion, ATM vulnerability is not that surprising. Come to think of it; when I look around at ATMs, they do not appear to have changed much. The attacks are not as complicated as cracking some enterprise environment. Odd to not hear more attacks on such a vulnerable system. I assume the close association with banking institutions and law enforcement is a natural deterrent.
