Windows XP cash machines can steal your PIN

The Trustwave SpiderLabs, an outfit that deals with everything from ethical hacking through to incident response and security forensics, is warning that the bank cash machine network is at risk from a malware attack that collects PIN numbers.

The SpiderLabs team reports that it has been able to perform an analysis of the malware, which had been discovered on compromised East European cash machines running Windows XP.

The malware was able to capture the magnetic stripe data from the private memory space of transaction-processing applications that were installed on these compromised ATMs, along with PIN codes for good measure.
