Criminals used malware program to steal millions from ATMs. http://www.computerworld.com/article/2692464/criminals-used-malware-program-to-steal-millions-from-atms.html

The criminals work in two stages. First, they get physical access to the ATMs and insert a bootable CD to install the malware code named Tyupkin by Kaspersky Lab. After they reboot the system, the infected ATM is under their control.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe. ― Albert Einstein ― Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

Not much the average consumer can do when it's an inside job. No amount of preventative measures can protect against this type of attack. The bank's security protocols are the weak link here.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
