First Talk

Feeling a little insecure ATM: An overview of cash machine malware


Vic Harkness (@VicHarkness) (website)


Vic originally embarked upon a lit review of ATM malware with the hopes of writing a blog post. As it turns out, there’s a whole lot happening in the field. From cash machines blowing their loads to a researcher’s office getting firebombed after blogging about a sample, the world of ATM malware is certainly not boring. This talk will provide an overview of the happenings in the world of ATM malware as well as descriptions of the various ATM malware families that can be seen in the wild. It may or may not summarise a paper on the field being written by Vic, depending on if she gets her ass in gear and finishes it or not.
