Malware cause of Thai ATM raids!

 
 

Security firm FireEye claims it may have found the malware that was the cause of the raids, on ATM machines across Thailand and other parts of South East Asia.

The security researchers think that the 'ripper' malware is linked to the raids of the ATM machines in Thailand. During these raids 12 million Thai baht (£265,308) was stolen, by a gang that are thought to be from Eastern Europe. 21 attacks happened between 9th July to 23rd August, police have said that some of the ATM machines that were affected dispensed 40,000 baht at a time. In Surat Thani alone the thieves took out 2.6 million baht from 4 of the ATM machines.
