    Given how many bank's electronic systems are old and insecure, why not have Windows on their ATMs?

    Some of them do. Most of them run linux

    @Haxk20 many systems run on XP EVEN IN THIS MOMENT.

    @stop Where is the problem? As long as there is no interface to inject data there is absolutely no reason to change anything in my opinion.

    @jonmi some thieves used the usb port to override the software and to pay out all the money.

    @stop In this case it doesn't matter which OS is used. When you have access to an USB port then say goodbye to security :D

    @jonmi wanacry and autostart were used

    @stop This attack would have worked with every Windows version available, so the problem is the USB port not the OS :)

    @stop I'm not sure what you are trying to say. I'm pretty sure that I am able to infect a normal Windows 7/8/10 in the same way with Wannacry as I can do it with Windows XP.
    As I mentioned before, when it is not possible to transfer data to an atm, then the OS behind it doesn't matter. But when there is a USB port you can infect every OS, Mac and Linux are maybe a little harder but not impossible. So I don't understand your problem with atms running XP today...

    @jonmi you know it's the classic: windows sucks, switch to linux, Windows has virus, Linux is totally secure...
