jackpotting

Jackpotting is the term used to describe attacks onATMs without the use of massive force. It involves software methods with which attackers exploit ATM vulnerabilities

and trick them into dispensing cash. Unlike skimming, which involves spying on ATM bank account numbers and passwords, jackpotting attacks target ATM cash reserves. There are different approaches to jackpotting. For example, attackers remove the top casing of the ATM to gain access to the components and USB interface

. Theythen connect their own personal computer and infect the ATM with malware

todispense cash.

Another attack technique uses remote access to access the ATM's software. This technique is similar to hackers gaining access to the software via the IP address. The cash is dispensed using a combination of keys.
