Windows Flaws Lead to Black Hat ATM Hack

An anonymous reader writes "Ever wonder what operating system most ATM's use? In a session at the Black Hat Las Vegas security conference, researcher Barnaby Jones hacked a pair of ATMs with cash literally flying out of them when he was done.

Jones explained that most ATM's run Microsoft Windows CE on ARM processors and they all tend to have remote updating capabilities. Jones wrote a remote exploitation program called Dilinger to remotely exploit the ATM. Then once the ATM is exploited he has another program called Scrooge which is a root kit for the ATM. With those tools, Jones — much to the delight of the massive Black Hat crowd that gathered to see him — he used his tools to exploit a pair of ATMs on stage — Live.
