Hacking it to pieces, that is; as in with a hammer and crowbar. Apparently, this has become the new best effort for the kind of folks that lurk around in dark corners; simply smashing the bejesus out of an ATM in the hopes of snagging some crisp currency.
An ATM technician and KrebsOnSecurity reader shared photos of a recent attack in which three would-be robbers went to town on a wall-mounted cash machine with crowbars and hammers.
According to the technician, the burglars ruined a $13,000 cash acceptor, a $5,000 check scanner, a $900 monitor, and a $700 card reader, among many other pricey items. Hardly any part of the machine escaped damage.KrebsOnSecurity
