ATM Security Talk Canceled

Kara Reeder

Juniper Networks has pulled an ATM security talk by one of its researchers scheduled to speak at the Black Hat conference.


According to PCWorld, staff Security Researcher Barnaby Jack was set to deliver a talk entitled "Jackpotting Automated Teller Machines," but it was canceled after an ATM maker threatened legal action.


"Considering the scope and possible exposure of this issue on other vendors, Juniper decided to postpone Jack's presentation until all affected vendors have sufficiently addressed the issues found in his research."


ATMs seem to be becoming a more popular target. Last month, Trustwave warned that cybercriminals have refined a malicious software program to capture sensitive card details on ATMs running Microsoft's Windows XP. The malware has been found on ATMs in Eastern European countries.
