I was trying to get some cash from an ATM. Instead of vending bank notes as it should, this happened...

I still need that cash...

    I thought ATMs had a specific OS or something...
    This is scary....

    @liammartens I heard that ATMs are the reason why Windows 3.1 still has a large install base.

    @caillou the whole or a major part of the industry runs on windows within its own forest and SSL or IPSec encryption, they even had a special contract with microsoft for extending their support on windows xp

    There's an endless discussion over the security of these things.. Last atm prototypes includes an iris scanner.

    Skimmers made me paranoid for quite some time.. I now check every cash withdrawal for loose parts. (Better safe than sorry)

    Look for krebsonsecurity for more info
