Does Diebold get ANYTHING right?



Nachi worm infected Diebold ATMs


The Nachi worm compromised Windows-based automated teller machines at two financial institutions last August, according to ATM-maker Diebold, in the first confirmed case of malicious code penetrating cash machines


The machines were in an advanced line of Diebold ATMs built atop Windows XP Embedded, which, like most versions of Windows, was vulnerable to the RPC DCOM security bug exploited by Nachi, and its more famous forebear, Blaster.


A patch … had been available from Microsoft for over a month at the time of the attack, but Diebold had neglected to install it in the infected machines.
