Brian Krebs, on his blog Krebs on Security, shares a warning to all consumers; the FBI has warned banks of an “unlimited operation” run by cyber criminals. Known as an “ATM cash-out,” it is a global and highly choreographed fraud scheme which uses cloned cards at ATMs. Supposedly, these cybercriminals can get ATM machines to fraudulently withdraw millions of dollars in just a few hours. Learn more about the FBI warning and this type of cyberattack through the link above.
Please be aware of this FBI warning and share it with others. The FBI has given tips to banks to help prevent these cyberattacks, but it is also important for consumers to be aware and careful. Learning about cybersecurity is a great way to be prepared for and hopefully prevent cyber attacks.
