Critical Fraud Alert!
Thieves targeting aging ATMs again, drilling holes under decals to access info.
We have recently seen an increase in customers with NCR P86 (Persona models) being targeted for fraud. Criminals are peeling off card decals and drilling holes into the ATMs to access info. This can be eavesdropping or an attempt to access the hard drive. Like with “jackpotting” in the Diebold Opteva 750, these thieves are targeting older model ATMs, which are more susceptible to attacks. Here is one article that discusses it.
Eavesdropping is nothing new in fraud, but it looks to have resurfaced. In addition to our ongoing fraud alerts, including jackpotting, skimming, & malware attacks, Here is a helpful document from NCR.
Recommendation: Add Suspicious Activity Notification (SAN). While thieves are constantly figuring out new ways to commit fraud, there is one solution that helps get to the root of the problem: Cook’s patent-pending Suspicious Activity Notification (SAN). The SAN solution recently caught two such incidents of fraud. If you have an aging ATM in your fleet, notify Cook Security Group immediately. To learn more about SAN click here.
