Apparently a Way of Hacking ATMs Called ‘Jackpotting’ Has Spread to the US

ATM manufacturers are warning that criminals are hacking into their devices using a method called “jackpotting”that has recently spread to the U.S. according to Reuters.

Both Diebold Nixdorf Inc and NCR Corp issued alerts, though they “did not identify any victims or say how much money had been lost.” NCR told Reuters that none of its equipment had been targeted, though Diebold Nixdorf warned that hackers were using the method to break into its Opteva-line ATMs, which are no longer being made.
