What Is Data Stealing Malware and How It Affects ATMs and Other Consoles

There are so many web threats out there that it can be difficult to figure out which ones you have to worry about. Most companies worry most about data stealing threats because they can take proprietary and personal information and use it for monetary gain. They can do this by underground distribution or direct use. At Comodo, we understand your need for security at all levels and have a product to help. If you’re worried about ATM security and how these threats could steal customer debit-card information, you aren’t alone. The types of risks under this umbrella term can include:

  • Screen scrapers
  • Keyloggers
  • Backdoors
  • Bots
  • Adware
  • Spyware

TWhile other threats deal with DNS poisoning, SEO abuse, phishing and spam, this type of risk focuses primarily on gaining access to your information in any way possible.

Types of Data Stealing Malware

TThere are probably thousands if not millions of threats out there, and it would be impossible for us to name them all. However, our product can thwart them all so that your ATMs and other consoles remain secure and safe.

TSome options require the assailant to visit the kiosk and implant hardware, such as a card scanner. They usually set it up to receive the information remotely, so they don’t have to go back to the attack point.

TSome malware types are only active during particular times or days or may use anti-emulation and anti-debug techniques so traditional antivirus and antimalware software can’t tell it is infected.

TIf you are worried about data stealing on your ATM, you should make sure you have adequate security cameras in place, enhance your protocols and rules, review access controls and more. You can also consider our product, and can contact us today to learn more.
