The description of the conference, which was set at Defcon website appears to have been removed, however, said: “The most common attacks on ATMs usually involves the use of the card skimmers, or theft of these devices themselves. Rarely seen targeted attacks on the underlying software. This presentation is the steps I follow to analyze the interface and find a weakness in a number of popular new model ATM. ”

Said in a statement, Juniper Networks, the company “Jack’s believes that research is important to be presented at a public forum, which is at the level of security. However, the affected ATM provider, we expressed concern by the announcement, the research protected by its elements in their entirety. Given the size and potential exposure of this issue to other vendors, Juniper has set Jack to all interested suppliers to move sufficiently addressed the issues found his research. ”
