ATMs may be affected by WannaCry

There is a serious malware cyber threat called “WannaCry” that is impacting many organizations worldwide. This type of threat is known as ransomware. It will encrypt the files on your end-points running Microsoft operating system software, rendering them inaccessible. ATMs are at risk of this attack. Additionally, this malware attempts to infect other end-points on the same network. Manufacturers have taken steps to respond to this threat.

LiquidNexxus presents guidance on ATM Malware at the (closed-door) Third Strategic Meeting on Payment Card Fraud (PCF) organised by EUROPOL, ASEANAPOL and INTERPOL in Bangkok.

On 13 and 14 December 2016, Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), together with ASEANAPOL and INTERPOL, and with the support of the Romanian National Police and the Royal Thai Police, convened for the Third Strategic Meeting on Payment Card Fraud (PCF) in Bangkok Thailand.
