​ATM Thieves Steal Millions With Malware

In Taiwan this week, officials suspect two Russians of pilfering over three dozen ATMs for a cumulative haul of over two million dollars. CCTV footage captured the thieves holding up cellphones to the cash-dispensers before looting them, raising suspicion that the pair used malware to overcome security measures. In response, Taiwanese banks have frozen withdrawals from the 1,000 or so ATMs that come from the same manufacturer as those affected in the heists.
