Lutte contre le Blanchiment des Capitaux (LBC)

Cyber attacks on bank cash machines are a growing problem despite strong law enforcement cooperation, warns Europol.

Cyber criminals are now able to access ATMs through bank networks, according to the report by Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and security firm Trend Micro.

“If we think of a modern ATM as a Microsoft Windows PC with a safe box full of money attached to it and controlled by software, we can see how it becomes a lucrative target for malware creators,” the report said.
