Cyber hackers target ATMs, Europe and Malaysia hit


Although cyber criminals have been attacking cash machines for at least five years, the early campaigns mostly involved small numbers of ATMs.

CYBER criminals have remotely attacked cash machines in more than a dozen countries across Europe this year, using malicious software that forces machines to spit out cash, according to Russian cyber security firm Group IB.
