Juni 2009 Archives

A catchy headline, as written by The Register. To quote more from the story (Full report with tech details):

The malware logs the magnetic-stripe data and personal identification number of cards used at an infected machine and provides an intuitive interface for retrieving the information using the ATM's receipt printer, [..] Since late 2007 or so, there have been at least 16 updates to the software, an indication that the authors are working hard to perfect their tool.

This is a nice example of what happens, when you ignore the things that are necessary to run an important area of your core business. The business area being the operation of the ATM machines (guess how bank teller utilization would look like if you throw out all ATMs). And a few of the things to run such a part competently would be: security (of the systems, the network), service lifecycle management and configuration management.
