ATM manufacturers are warning about "jackpotting", in which hackers are breaking into machines and installing malicious software and hardware to make them spit out cash.
"That's where you get the term jackpotting from because it is basically like a slot machine that you hit the jackpot - you are basically taking all of the money out of the ATM", supervisory special agent Matt O'Neill told ABC News. A company spokesman declined further comment, but offered a copy of the alert, which noted that the attacks were first reported in Mexico and target one of its out-of-production models.
According to a January 26 customer advisory from NCR, the company had received reports from the Secret Service and other sources about these types of attacks against US-based ATMs. The compromised ATMs can dispense up to 40 bills every 23 seconds- tens of thousands of dollars from a single ATM.
